Lexapro and tanning rash?

Hi,
I have been taking 10mg of Lexapro a day for about 3 months.
I just started tanning for the season (I know, i shouldn't), but it's a bad habit I started years ago.
I started very slow since it is a brand new bed & I'm pretty fair skinned, but after a few times I've developed a pretty nasty rash.  This is new for me. The rash is clusters of boils under my arms & on my back & chest & a couple on my legs. They really itch, too!
I've been putting Benadryl cream on them.
They only thing I've done differently is using the Lexapro.
Could this be causing the rash?
I do not use tanning accelerator or anything in the bed. I moisturize with a normal loiton before I go.
This is a STAND UP BOOTH so it can't be I'm allergic to the cleaning agent they might have used to clean the bed. I don't touch the bulbs.
Have you ever heard of this before?
Thank you,
Bigalspal
