Fair skin, freckles, skin redness, sun burn

I have a fair complextion (w/ freckles), but for the past 2 to 3 years my skin has been looking more red. Everyone asks me if I have been out in the sun but actually I hardly go out in the sun because I get sunburned easily. What would cause this? This happens whether it is winter or summer time. It doesn t itch and it s not painful. In fact, I don t even notice it until someone makes a comment to me. Pleae help me understand.

Thanks for choosing HCM..,
Redness on face due to sun exsposure..,
it is due to intolerance of skin on sun exposure..,
