Hello since exposure to the sun in past few days I have some lighter patches on my forehead around my hair line, areas that look like they haven't tanned like the rest of the head. They are a light pink but don't match the rest of my forehead.

welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to make assessment of skin conditions without a proper physical examination. Hence a specific diagnosis is not possible.

Possible conditions that might be the cause include - conditions like seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff), fungal infections or atopic dermatitis.

It would be best to consult with your doctor or dermatologist in person who can provide a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
