Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be related to sunlight exposure.Photolichenoid eruptions can be caused by exposure to intense sun,appear on face ,cause peeling of skin.
A visit to your dermatologist will help to diagnose and treat the condition.
Till the time apply a good quality moisturizer over the area twice daily and take tab cetirizine 5mg once or twice a day,this will help to bring down itching.
Hope this helps.

IN PARTICULAR WHETHER IN SOME PLACES THESE LESIONS OCCUR
DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE THE SKIN IMEDIATELY REACTS AND WHEN ONE ADJUST IT IS OK AND AGAIN PLACE CHANGE
YOU CAN USE ANTI ALLERGIC TABS AND OINTMENTS IF DOES NOT CLEAR
CAN APPLY CALAMINE BEFORE GOING TO SUN IN SUCH AREA WHERE THE CLIMATE IS DRY AND WARM
