In brief: SUN-SENSITIVE
Sun-sensitity is common and may be due to medications or medical conditions.
The solution is to cover sun sensitive areas and use SPF >50 sun screens. If itch progresses to rash then further investigation may be needed. Anti-histamines (claritin, zyrtec, (cetirizine) allegra) may help.
