Heat and sunshine can trigger a Polymorphic Light Eruption (PLE) rash due to sun sensitivity, as can Cholinergic Urticaria from sweating. The best treatment would be a simple antihistamine such as Cetirizine and Hydrocortisone 1% cream. Slowly increase sun exposure and don't overdo exposure on the first day of the holidays.
