Hi,

Sorry, due to some technical error query wasn't completely visible.

I have gone through the history entirely.

Thanks for the information.

Based on the history I too suspect it to be due to sun. To be sure I would like to have a look at the blotches you have.

Kindly photograph them and mail to YYYY@YYYY to my attention or attach the images right side of this page.

Waiting for the images,

This is not from the sun because i have been using 30+ sunscreen daily as far back as I could remember. If it were so I should have gotten it when I lived in Miami for over 25yrs. This came about when I moved to XXXXXXX in the past 2yrs. And why is it only on my neck and not on my face?? Will forward pic shortly/

Brief Answer:
Image would help me well

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Blotches if flat and not raised indicate sun burn.

If one can see a blotch raised and feel rubbery on touch can be due to erythematic reaction, allergic reaction or Urticaria.
