Photodermatitis is an abnormal skin reaction to sun exposure. People who suffer from photodermatitis  have a physiological overreaction to ultraviolet rays. Photodermatitis can be acute or chronic and is a form of allergic contact dermatitis. It is also commonly known as a sun allergy or sun poisoning. The major symptoms of photodermatitis include itching on the skin, blisters, hyper-pigmentation, and swelling or burning on the skin.

People having fair to light skin or those having red and blonde hair are more predisposed to develop photodermatitis. People exposed to sunlight for excessive hours persistently for long time durations are also at risk for developing photodermatitis.

    Every time I am over exposed to the sun, since I was a very little girl, I get a rash that itches and gets worse if I scratch it. It appears in the same places…. outside of thighs, underneath side of upper arms. More sensitive areas. Sometimes on ribcage. I have just read that there is a name to it.

    The only thing Ive ever been given for it is steroids, prednisone, and I have never been told a name for it. Please advise on what I might try.
