Sun Help Needed

As I live in Arizona, sun is a constant. I try to stay out of direct sunlight, but today it was lovely so we sat outside and had lunch. I was wearing a pair of jeans, but after a time, they became hot - my arms were covered as was most all of my skin except my face. When I got home, my thigh was completely mottled - as my skin has gotten whenever I am exposed to sun's heat. Last summer while out in the pool, my chest, arms and legs got covered with this rashy mottling. So I went to the Rheum Dr. he said ANA and other autoimmune tests were all normal. The Derm didn't know what my rash was, as describing it just left both dr.'s hung. Anyone able to identify with this - I took a pic for my Dr. but without other labs meeting the lupus ID is it worth it to go back? I also have CONSTANT fatigue, am 50 and nothing else is remarkable...Thanks for help -
