Porphyria is defined as: Intermittent attacks of nervous system dysfuntion and/or skin sunlight sensitivity. You have to treat the skin lesions by avoiding sunlight exposure completely or covering up skin when going outside. Consult the online Skin Expert or make an appointment with a Dermatologist regarding treatment of the existing scarring and pigmentation marks.
