Spotty rashes in the sun

When on a sun holiday, I always end up with itchy red spotty rashes on my skin. Prickly heat? I use suntan lotion, take antihistamine tablets for a week prior and during my holiday and stay out of the sun as much as possible. Is there any way to prevent this or if not any way to treat it effectively...

Necrobiosis

I have necrobiosis on my shin (photo attached). Do you have any advice on treatment or even a cure?
I have had steroid injections which has taken the redness away but the skin is now virtually see-through and very very thin. Advice would be helpful. Thank you

Red patch

Lately I have noticed a little red dry patch on my nose and another near my eyebrow. I am not sure what it is. I am wondering if it is to do with wearing masks a lot? It hasn't really responded to moisturiser. Thank you

sebacious cysts

I have a lot of small sebacious cysts on my forehead and a few on my face. At least that is what I assume they are. I've tried squeezing them to no effect. Is there anything I can do about my problem? Thank you
