Hi,your history is suggestive of Solar Urticaria or PMLE (Polymorphic Light Eruption).Avoiding the sun,using a good sun block (e.g Photostable sunscreen gel) and Antihistamines(Tab Loratidine 10 mg during the day and Tab Fexofenadine 180 mg at night) constitutes the line of treatment for the above mentioned conditions.
