Brief Answer:
polymorphic light eruption is most likely possibil

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

It seems that you are suffering from a condition called polymorphic light eruption.
It is a sort of allergy due to sun exposure leading to various types of itchy skin lesions. There is associated burning sensation also usually on sun exposure.

I will advice you to put a pic of the lesions so that I can help you to my best.
Stay healthy.
