Thanks for the query. This presentation can be seen in many disease and could be a presenting sign of some systemic diseases. A thorough history, clinical examination and appropriate laboratory tests will be needed to solve the mystery. Consider seeing a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment plan. It could be a Seborrheic dermatitis or sun allergy.
