Thanks for the query.
Probably this is an allergic reaction to sunlight medically termed as polymorphic light eruption abbreviated as PMLE. Topical steroids and adequate sunblock are main stay of treatment. Physical protection in form of broad rimmed hat and umbrellas also helps. Preexposure results in recurrences which are unpredictable.
Meet a Dermatologist for better understanding of the sufferings
Hope it helps.
