1381685 tn?1352817723 Complaint of "shot like" pain under left armpit. Splotchy looking rash in "farmers tan" type pattern. All over bright blue veins showing through skin.
Avatar f tn For the past 6 years or so, every time I have a fever, within 2 days I break out in a rash all over my body. Each time it occurs, it covers more of my skin than the previous time. The first day it starts to show, it barely itches. The second day, it becomes nearly unbearably itchy. If I scratch, or my clothes do, after a few second that area will sting and burn. The burning and itching is also triggered by heat and warm moisture.
Avatar n tn I have had Scarlet Fever for the past few weeks. The rash is now gone but my skin is totally discolored all over my body. Will this go away on its own? I have been using lotion all day long to try to get it to heal faster.
Avatar n tn The most common rash suddenly appearing on the body is rash due to a variety of viruses. These viral rashes can have many different appearances, such as lacy or pimply, raised or flat, bumps, spots, or blotches, and they often start on the trunk and usually associated with fever. Rashes that you should watch out for are petechiae or purpura. They are caused by ruptured blood vessels under the skin.
Avatar m tn It's been 14 days now that I developed a very severe skin rash all over my body (except for the face, neck, palms and soles). It started on my arms, legs (especially in the thighs) and back of the hands. A week later it appeared on my stomach, chest and back of the feet. At the beginning it was very itchy. Now looks like it's healing and it's leaving dark acne-like scars. I have had NO fever, NO flu-like symptoms of any sort, NO lymph nodes, NO muscular or joints ache, NO sore throat.

Avatar m tn But just wondering about the fact, whether fever and rash can not come together, fever comes a week or so earlier. And can rash last for that long. Thanks all that can be any help on this.
Avatar m tn For the duration of the rash, I have also been running a low-grade fever. The rash came out of nowhere. I made no changes in routine, food, or medication prior to it emerging. My primary care physician prescribed antihistamines and steroid cream. When these failed to work, we did an 8 day, 40mg prednisone taper. The prednisone removed much of the inflammation of the rashes, but did not reduce surface area or prevent the spread.
377493 tn?1356505749 My boys have had roseola but it doesn't take that course that you describe (usually fever and then the rash is after it). I've had friends that have had their kids get mouth/foot and it is horrible I've heard. But this seems to be going on for such a long time. Can you give him anything? Tylenol and benodryl? I'm sorry. This sounds dreadful.

Avatar f tn ARS rash is body wide. Not just limited to arms. Around 70% of people with ARS have fever, sore throat and body wide rash. Since you dont have fever and sore threat, your symptoms are not suggestive of ARS. Get a duo test at 4 weeks. Over 99% of people show up positive on duo test at 4 weeks.
Avatar n tn and a red, itchy rash lasting four to seven days. The rash usually begins on the face and then spreads over the entire body. Koplik spots or little white spots may also appear on the gums and inside of cheeks. Fever may be controlled with paracetamol and tepid sponge bath. If symptoms persists, it would be best to have this evaluated further by your doctor. Make him drink plenty of fluids to replace fluid loss. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar n tn Hi, My 3.5 year old developed a flesh-colored rash on her entire body and its been there now for almost a week. It kind of looks like she has goosebumbs all the time but its even on her fingers and face, like I said everywhere. Even in the palms of her hands It doesnt itch, and is not painful, and its not in a pattern but just completely covers her whole body.

Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, your body rash seems secondary to allergy known as atopic dermatitis and also other strong possibility is irritant dermatitis. Remember if you have been exposed to any chemical (detergent, shampoo etc.) or new garments which might have caused irritant dermatitis. if it is present, Avoiding these situations is helpful for acute flares as well as for long-term management.
Avatar n tn Exposure to sunlight could have triggered off a type of Contact dermatitis of the sensitized skin which could be secondarily infected causing the fever and the pustular rash. Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating substance. Some products cause a reaction only when they contact the skin and are exposed to sunlight (photosensitivity).
Avatar n tn Can anyone please let me know does the rash manifest itself as a rash if so can it be anywhere on the body or can this sympton also come up as spots. Your views would be appreciated...
