Has anyone experienced a rash on arms, legs, chest after recent sun exposure? It isn't an obvious red rash but can be felt as raised spots and sometimes itchy. I know a couple people that have experienced this esp. since sun exposure last Saturday. I wondered if it was something in atmosphere or more like allergic reaction to pollen or something to due with molds, etc. Broke out last Saturday and still have raised patches of skin that can't necessarily be seen but felt and can be itchy.
Scarey what might be in our air!!

It has nothing to do with this area or the atmosphere, it's called PMLE or Polymorphous light eruption. You can develop it later in life. Here's some info and you can google it. I have it myself.
Polymorphous light eruption is an itchy rash caused by sun exposure in people who have developed a sensitivity to sunlight (photosensitivity). The rash usually appears as red, tiny bumps or slightly raised patches of skin.
Polymorphous light eruption occurs most often during spring and early summer when a person's exposure to sunlight increases. Repeat episodes are less likely as the summer progresses, but polymorphous light eruption often recurs each year after the first incident.
Although anyone can develop polymorphous light eruption, several factors are associated with an increased risk of the condition:
Women are more likely to develop the disorder.
The first episode most often appears during the teenage years or 20s.
People with fair skin or those living in northern regions are more likely to develop the disorder.
A family history of polymorphous light eruption among some people with the condition suggests a possible genetic risk factor.
