Brief Answer:
Possible PMLE

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I understand your concern.

I have gone through your uploaded images.

These spots possibly represent a condition called PLME-Polymorphous light induced eruption.

Polymorphous light eruption (PMLE) is an acquired disease and is the most common of the sun induced skin disorders

PMLE is characterized by recurrent, abnormal, delayed reactions to sunlight, appearing in different forms. Within any 1 patient, only 1 clinical form is consistently manifested.In your case, erythematous papules are seen.

You are prescribed the right kind of medication.

Thank you.
