Rashes - exposed to sun

When exposed to sun, i am getting rashes on face, neck and hands. Itchy. Rash is going off on its own after 3-4 days. Doctors informed me that i have low iron content in blood couple of months back. Any relevance with these rashes and low iron levels?

Hello there...I can understand your concern. from your description it looks like you could be suffering from pmle or sle. these conditions are not related to iron levels in the body we will need a more elaborate history and clinical examination to confirm the diagnosis. so kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation.
