More information: The symptoms of leukemia can include, fevers, fatigue, easy bruising, nose bleeds or gum bleeding, enlarged lymph nodes, recurrent infections, headaches and sometimes a rash.

Tick-Born Illness?: I will presume that 'on him' should read 'on abx' for 2 weeks. It sounds as though the treating clinician may have suspected a tick-born source of your rash in the setting of fatigue and prescribed a prolonged course of antibiotics to treat. Mold allergy (any allergy) can cause a variety of symptoms, including rash, but treatment for mold would not require antibiotics. ...Read more

Bluish or purplish spots may be blood spots. Sometimes, spots have unknown causes. Rashes on the job can be from chemicals in gloves, solvents, detergents, etc... ...Read more

I have ibs, fatigue, sores in the corner of my mouth, and very itchy skin. Should I get checked for celiac disease?

Can check lab tests: A person who has signs of celiac disease, or is very worried she may have it, can see her primary care doctor or her GI specialist to get a lab test ordered. If the test is positive for celiac disease, she can go on a gluten-free diet. If the test is negative, but she still wants to try a gluten-free diet anyway, she can do a 1-2 month trial off all gluten and watch what happens. ...Read more

Infection: You sound like you have either pelvic inflammatory disease or pyelonephritis - both are serious infections.

Eyelids sensitive: Eyelid skin is very delicate so it reacts easily to chemicals in the air or surface contact. Your eyelids could be irritated by or allergic to products used around your eyes, on your face or scalp, or things you handle. Seborrheic dermatitis can also cause scaly, red eyelids. You could try a brief course of hydrocortisone, used sparingly or be evaluated by a derm. Nail polish/epoxy have caused. ...Read more
