Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No he didn't get too much sun ... But wondered if it was Polymorphic light eruption?
As I always put a hi factor on him?
Dr David are you dermatologist
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
yes, it could very well be polymorphic light eruptionit is on sun exposed areas of his skin and his skin is reacting like a sun burn.your question was not answered in dermatology so it was moved into general medicine category.has he had this type of skin reaction before?The exact cause of polymorphous light eruption isn't well-understood.
