Thanks for writing here.

It seems your friend has got severe sun allergy.

Ask him to stay indoors as far as possible.

Do not apply any soap over affected area.

Ask him to apply ice or cotton cloth soaked in water.

Start applying a steroid cream like mometasone over affected area two to three times daily.You can also give him anti allergic tablets like cetrizine at night.

In case there is no improvement it will be better to consult a dermatologist.

Hope this will solve your query.Take care.
