Skin mottling from sun, temporarily

Patient : I had an incident recently with my skin mottling. It happened when I was sitting in the car and the sun was beating down on my legs. It was one spot on my inner thigh near my knee. After my skin cooloed and I was out of the sun it went away but left it a bit itchy. This has only happened to me once before when I was pregnant and I was sitting outside in black shorts. The area was hot, and had a mottled honeycomb shape to it. It appears with heat/sun and goes away after I am out of the sun. What could cause this? I dont have any other symtoms and no conditions I am aware of.
Symptoms:  Skin mottling, itchy afterwards
