No picture, no brand name, no idea on exactly where it is rusting.
Is it rusted through, just pits?
Help us out here.

Does it sit on a curb or the roof? Self-flashing?

Is it the flashing or the frame that's rusting.
Must be an older sky light if it's rusting, most now are powder coated or aluminum.

Rusting on the outside or inside. Can you sand the rust,prime and paint?
