Rash on face during summer

My husband has been getting a rash on his face every summer for the past three years. The rash comes out during the first few hot days and lasts until the cool fall weather.

It appears by the top of his cheek bone and spreads to under his eye. The first year it was on the right side of his face the next year the other. This year it seems to be coming out on the right side again. It is very strange, rash is a little bit itchy sometimes, but overall really does not bother him. It is a dark red color and hard to the touch.

Does anyone have any idea what this might be? We do not have insurance at this time, so I was hoping to get a little advise if any way had experienced a similar problem.
