Redness on neck, chest. Lighter round blotches on chest. Is this the sun damage?

i have redness on my neck and chest area. occasionally, i see lighter round blotches on my chest. is this sun damage? my skin was not always sensitive, and it is now just in those areas. whenever i scratch or rub my neck, it gets red and looks like I have hives. the hives appearance just started two days ago and has faded a little. now, my skin feels warmer, like I have sunburn.
