I have developed a rash on my hands, lower arms, and knee area. I presume it is due to the sun, as I live in Toronto and recently went down to Florida to visit my parents. I have not had a lot of sensitivity to the sun in the past, and I have no burns anywhere; however the rash is quite noticeable, especially on my hands. In fact, the area with the rash is the least sensitive area to the sun (i.e. hands).
I searched online for heat rash symptoms, and I assume this is what I have; however the areas affected by the rash for me appear to contradict the usual places heat rash occurs in.
Any ideas on treatment, and how it can be prevented again?
