Self-Diagnosed Sun Rash

A red rash appeared while we were on vacation, only in sun-touched areas of my skin. I looked it up on internet dermatological sites and it appears to be a form of sun rash.

It is not new for me, but was more intense than what I had in the past. Apparently some fair-skinned individuals are prone to this.

Ouchy. Is that the same as "sun poisoning," which my sister would get at times (like spending too long on a lilo bed out on the water in the sun). It must be a kind of radiation sickness.

I have read some about sun poisoning, which is a more systemic reaction to sun, including nausea and vomiting, which I did not have, thank goodness.
