Birth Control and Sun Sensitivity

I am experiencing a red, burning rash that shows up after I am out of the sunshine.  I am in perimenopause and am having trouble with my hormones.  My gynocologist is trying to find the right birth control pill to help with this.  I have been having reactions to these pills (spotting).  Could the birth control pills be causing my skin rash too?

I have the same issue with the sun.  IT started when I switched to Yaz, but now I'm on loestrin and I'm experiencing the same thing.  I break out in hives, but on my legs, it looks more like a splotchy rash that itches occasionaly.  It always happens when I'm out in the sun for about an hour.  I use sunblock 45 and I still break out in these weird hive things.  Thinking of going back to Yasmin.  I had no problems with them at all.
