Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Do you have a picture?
any symptoms with the rash?
Ok. I agree that this does look autoimmune in nature
do you have any medicine to put on it?
I would be very careful
your first day or two there just get a small amount of sun and see how it reacts
sun helps some of these conditions

I think it is autoimmune of some type
not sure about lupus
Yes, you can try a small amount of sun
I am thinking something like lichen planus
sometimes it can
sometimes it is helped with light
so you will have to see
there are cures yes
I suggest you use hydrocortisone cream over the counter for now
and test light exposure
No I don't think you should delay your trip
just be careful in the sun and use sunblock
