I went to a clinic with body aches. I had a 101.3 fever and they told me I had the flu. I had a very uncomfortable night and woke up with a rash. ?

Not sure what your : question is. If your rash is purple/bruised-looking, and doesn't "blanch," ie turn white-ish or lose color when pressed, or if it blisters or develops any black areas, go back to ER *immediately.* Other reasons to go back: vomiting up fluids/meds, fever remains over 101.4(F)/38(C), stiff & painful neck, headache, rapid pulse >100bpm, chills w/ temp >96(F)/35.5(C), or any other worrisome symptoms.
