  User's Response I have long been ailed with skin conditions relative to the one you mentioned above. I have found recently that by taking in more water than I have ever been used to, and bathing in baths longer. My skin seems to be healthier and stronger. Perhaps this is something you might be willing to try. There is a new documentary on netflix called the incredible human machine, which details the intracacies of our bodies and their marvolous healing abilities. Breathe As Deep as you can, eat the healthiest food, and drink at least a half gallon of water a day. Three coke cans worth, one right when you wake up in the morning. That will really do you some good.

General & Family Physician Dr. Radhika Thyagaraju's  Response
photodermatitis is a condition where the skin is sentitive to the rays of the sun.
it can cause sun burns rash and in extreme cases cancer too.
May result in swelling, a burning sensation, a red itchy rash sometimes resembling small blisters, and peeling of the skin. Nausea may also occur. There may also be blotches of large to small areas where the itching may persist for long periods of time. In these areas an unsightly orange to brown tint may form, usually near or on the face.
avoid too much exposure to sun.
wear full sleeved clothes. avoid going out in direct sun in the mid afternoon.
wear a sunscreen.
and if you notice any lesion which is itchy or suspicious please contact a dermatologist.
i hope i have answered your query.
take care
