The sun turns me into The Fly.

YANMD, but MD(ermatologist) can't see me until October (!), thanks to some excellent health insurance. Last summer I started, seemingly out of nowhere, having a very odd and very severe reaction to the sun on my face - whiteheads, all over, almost literally in crops all over my face.

It might be getting worse, I can't get to see a dermatologist, and I work outside in the summers - is there any help for me this summer? [more inside]
