User avatar Hello,While it is likely that you have a photosensitivity it also could mean that rosacea has to be ruled out especially since you complain of painful acne like lesions and visible blood vessels(Telangectasias).While the burning after sun exposure could well mean photosensitivity,people with rosaea too become sensitive to sunlight.
A mite called demodex infests the skin could be behind the symptoms.Some believe that a bacterium in the stomach Helicobacter pylori could contribute to this condition.
Sunscreen lotions would help and if it is demodex metronidazole gel,or tablets internally are useful.
You should get evaluated and I am sure you shoud do well.
Best wishes.
