i think you have freckles or lentigens which occur due to sun exposure.
-sunscreen twice a day regularly
-you can try triluma cream on pigmentation
-not a single OTC cream will work,so dont waste ur money in them,better to consult dermatology

Dear Lady
Skin manifestation is purely looking of art as long as correct diagnosis is concern, but if you are right on your side then I would advise you to wear cotton garment avoid going out in the sun, eat lots of leafy vegetable green and leafy vegetable contains chlorophyll and good amount of vitamins which is much beneficial for skin health as long as the question of sun allergy is concern do not try any kind of steroids simple sun screen would be much better
