In brief: Viral infection. . .

An otherwise normal, healthy young person can get rash + joint aches + tiredness from problems such as: viral infections (including those caused by certain bug bites), allergic reactions, auto-immune conditions (like juvenile arthritis), and a few other disorders.
It is time to see the primary care doctor, who can evaluate and help with the diagnosis.
