Hi Andrea,

It seems like your mom is suffering from a severe form of Photodermatatis. It needs to be treated.

Please take her to the Dermatologist.

She needs to use sunscreen lotion liberally every 2 hours when she is indoors as well. Also, apply calamine lotion to the affected skin for soothing and moisturization.

I wish your mom a speedy recovery.
