Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. But for exact diagnosis, confirmation needs to be done first for which he has to consult a dermatologist.
But it has other associated signs and symptoms such as cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever and a red, blotchy skin rash. Hives or urticaria causes red and sometimes itchy rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
When the blisters break, they leave shallow ulcers that are very painful. These ulcers eventually crust over and slowly heal over 7 - 14 days. With your description of the rash, this may not be the case. It is more of an infection. Proper clinical diagnosis is important. Again, try to avoid scratching to prevent secondary infection. Take care and regards.

On the way to church two Sundays ago m husband came down suddenly with a rash that started with two spot on his hand before we left and by the time we got to church it was all over his arms and hands. By the time we got home it had spread all over him and it was red, angry looking and very itchy. By Monday evening he was in agony with the itching and starting to have a lot of congestion and was losing his voice.
I'm still pursuing testing to find out if there is an underlying cause I can deal with to prevent the rash in the future or to know better how to treat the rash if it isn't preventable. I hope this helps someone who may be ill, or staying ill, because they are not stopping to rest and let their body heal to stop and relax and let their body do the amazing work it can do when it is not under stress!!
My son had something similar and it was roseola. It starts with a fever and once that went away, rash was present. Oh yeah, he was miserable at that time too!!!! It is a virus, if this is what he has. It doesn't last too long. The fever was scarey but the rash was harder because of how he reacted to it. He had cold symptoms too and he would cough until he threw up. Fun fun. Give your pediatrician a call but I think tylenol is going to be the only relief in sight.

What could this be? I have not changed foods or detergents or clothing.

Hi. Is the rash painful, itchy, scaly? A whitish rash may suggest a psoriatic lesion or a fungal infection. It may also be a lichenified skin condition.

This has been present for moths and during those months were there any associated symptoms like a fever perhaps?
