Swollen glands, enlarged lymph nodes with tenderness. Hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, red pin head dots on skin...cold/flu symptoms that come on, go away and come back days or couple weeks later....progressively feeling work over last couple years....was diagnosed with epstein barr at 15, now 26.
In your case it can be the persisting mono infection. Swollen lymph nodes across multiple areas or generalized lymphadenopathy can also be due to viral infections such as cytomegalovirus or due to bacterial infections like TB. HIV or AIDS, leukemia, lymphomas and other cancers can also be a cause. This could also be due to inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Since you also have rash like lesions rheumatoid arthritis and bone marrow disorders need to be ruled out.
It is difficult to determine the cause on net. This is not something you should ignore. Please consult your doctor. Take care!
