Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, a dermatologist.
I don't think it is sun poisoning.
It can be an exaggerated sun burn or a photosensitive rash.
I would recommend you to upload the photographs of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.
