Rashes on legs, arm, back of neck, little pin pricks

I am getting a rash that looks like little pin-pricks on my legs when they are exposed to the sun. This is now covering both of my legs from the knees down and you can see a clear line where my socks were. I get it a little on my arms and the back of my neck when I get too much sun there, but it gets really bad on my legs. What is this and what can I do to treat it?

It seems your skin highly sensitive to sunlight and you have to avoid exposure to sunlight as far as possible. you can wear stockings, leggings and wear gloves to protect your hands and high collared shirts to protect your neck are always better. You can also use sun screening creams with SPF more than 15 whenever you go outside or if there is a chance to exposure to sunlight. These measures will protect your skin definitely. Now you can use moderate potent steroid creams and multivitamin tablets and mild toilet soaps with moisturizers with the advice of your Dermatologist.. You will be free from all your symptoms soon.
