In brief: Sun Screen
Sunscreen can help.
Of course less exposure is helpful. Stay out of direct sunlight, where a cap or hat. Avoid sunlight between 10 and 2pm. When you do breakout, try Hydrocortisone 1 or 2% to the effected area and wait till the rash clears before going out. Some foods can trigger and exagerated response as well. Do you have any food allergies that you are aware of. Use spf 30 or 50 too.
