My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This apparently is a type of allergy,either due to exposure to sun or some allergen.Since there is no redness or discharge you can put anti allergic or astringent drops and take a anti allergic tablet .Such allergies start improving in a short while.
If you do not start showing improvement in 24 to 36 hours then a doctor is to be consulted to revise the diagnosis.
