I am 29 now. I am overweight . Skin around neck and on hands getting rashes when exposed to sunlight.
I am getting periods in two months.

Hello,It would have been more useful if you had mentioned the disease.Bullous disesae is a vague term encompassing commoner bullous impetigo to the more serious types like chronic bullous disease of childhood and dermatitis herpetiformis.
It is however more likely that it was Chronic Bullous Disease Of Childhood from your history.This condition is a rare auto immune disease.The good thing about it is that it remits in most cases in a couple of years.So I guess there is nothing more to worry assuming the diagnosis.Do get treated for photosensitivity with sunscreen lotions externally and Bcarotene internally ideally through proper diet.
