Multiple causes: There are several sources of a rash like this that vary greatly in source. Viral infections leading rashes with these symptoms are common. Streptococcal infections can lead to similar rashes. It will require photography to help clarify.

Could be viral: but I always get concerned about Strep throat and the rash from Strep when I hear about symptoms like yours. I strongly recommend you get a throat culture and if positive, treat with oral antibiotic.
