Brief Answer:
Bit to be concerned

Detailed Answer:
Hello there

Thanks for asking to healthcaremagic..

Need some more information to help better..

1)Can you upload a clear picture of your face ?

2)Any symptoms like burning or itching sensation ?

With the limited information, I think you seem to have developed photo dermatitis..

Management of this condition is primarily to implement preventive measures..In moderate to severe cases ,treatment with immunosuppressants like corticosteroids (I.e topical hydrocortisone ) would be helpful..

A dermatologist opinion is recommended...

Awaiting your reply..
