Hi,

Are you using a medicated sun screen?

What is your age? Since when have you noticed the lesions? For how long have you been on the medications?

It would be best to reconsult with your doctor to discuss whether the medications need to be continued or changed.

This could be persistent lesions due to sun exposure or some fungal infection or due to some mineral deficiencies in your diet.

Let us know about what your doctor advises.

You can use calamine lotion at the lesions till then.

Post us about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
