Three or four weeks ago I got sunburned really bad. My chest and right shoulder peeled starting about 5 days later; however, my left shoulder blistered before peeling. Now it's just tannish. However, now I have these red bumps that either are like pimples (can pop them) or just red bumps. They do not itch per say, except when I sweat a lot. I get these red bumps every time I go out in the sun (even if I wear SPF 50). If I get any color I get them on my chest and neck real bad. In addition, sometimes I get small white ones on my arms where the sun hits my skin. And yes, I wash at least once or twice a day. Could I be allergic to the sun?
