What are symptoms of polymorphic light eruption?

ANSWER

The rash can take many forms. A common kind of PMLE looks like groups of pink or red raised spots on the arms. You can also get it on other areas, including the legs and chest.

Sometimes the rash has blisters and larger dry, red spots. It may burn or itch and can last for several days.
