    Sun allergy maybe?

    I'm not quite sure what's going on with me. I'm a teenager- I was diagnosed with mono at the beginning of January. It's now July, and all my symptoms had gone away. I started working as a lifeguard and swim instructor this summer so I spend 4 or 5 + hours in the sun almost everyday. I've never had any reaction to the sun before, except I've never spent this much time outside before. I've been getting this red rash all the way down the inside/tops of my arms and legs. It's not super itchy or painful- just there. But I've had extreme fatigue and headaches lately; even slight dizziness. I get headaches almost everyday. The fatigue has been awful. It's like no matter how much I sleep, I'm still tired. I do feel slightly achy and dizzy. My pupils also tend to dilate when I have headaches. My mom has lupus and I know she's sensitive to the sun. Some of my symptoms could be a flare up from mono, though. What do you think..? Has anyone had any experience with a rash that follows the inside/tops of your arms and legs?
