1st three days in warm sun, no SPF or sunburn, and I have these itchy, small pimples all over my arms. New issue, started Friday and hasn't gone away.
Not sun poisoning: Do not take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) unless you want a sleeping pill. It is dangerous to use if driving. It will do nothing for this type of condition.

Exanthems (= rashes): Such as yours are often impossible to diagnose with out the MD having the advantage of " laying eyes on it." Photos of good resolution can help but won't supplant good clinical evaluation. There are so many possibilities it wouldn't help anything to try to narrow down with such little information.
