Topical: Cortisone cream may help but speaking with a dermatologist is advised. A red, splotchy rash is typical after only a few minutes in the sun.

PMLE: Polymorphic light eruption is a common problem in which the hands and other parts of the body may break out in a rash after the first significant sun exposure of the season. It goes away in about a week, but a steroid cream from your doctor will help it go away more quickly. Fortunately, it doesn't necessarily come back every year.
