Skin rashes on sun expose
Whenever I drive on a sunny day, I get some rashes on my skin, on hands and sometimes on back of my neck, ie. Sun exposed areas. They don't itch or cause any sensation, but they spread quickly if I scratch. Afraid it may lead to vitiligo! Pls suggest what exactly is this & how to prevent it. Also I'm using surfaz-sn ointment on affected areas just as a prevention. Thank you.

They appear to be urticarial rashes triggered due to heat exposure. Use haridrakhanda 2tsp after food at night with lukewarm water.

Stay away from direct sunlight as far as possible. Cover body parts with protective clothes. Please refrain from using surfaz sn as it contains steroid and can lead to side effects with repeated use.
