Rash: Hi Does he have rash on his hands, feet, inside the mouth as well? we are seeing a lot of cases of Hand FOOT and Mouth disease, which caused by a virus. Fever and rash together are likely secondary to viral infection. If the rash is worsening, fever is getting higher then he needs to be seen .

Viral infection: He needs symptomatic treatment---fever control,fluids.watch for dehydration if he has sores in the mouth as well and does not drink well.

Probably not: In younger women congestive dysmenorrhea can be very severe just before and the first 1-2 days of the cycle. If the symptoms are so severe consider using oral contraceptives which will relieve the symptoms. Talk to your gynecologist about it.

Probably not: Cirrhosis is not usually associated with hair loss.Any time there is a rapid reduction in weight or any kind of illness then we can see hair loss increase for several months. This type of hair loss comes back so not to worry. Good luck on your weight loss.
