Hello. Rash on lips, dry throat and the tonsils inflammation, dry eyes and red spots on the skin (and i got measles as a child) what could i have?

See your doc: If you had has normal measles (rubeola) as a kid, you should be immune. You may have german measles (rubella). I wouldn't expect so if you were vaccinated as a child. Alternatively, if you are blistering on anything with a mucous membrane lips, cheeks, throat, eyes--you could be having a bad allergic reaction called stevens johnson syndrome. That's pretty serious and requires urgent attention. ...Read more

I've had sore in both nostrils off and on for the last month and a half, rash on neck, face and chest and fluid in the ears. Any idea what this is?

Allergy: The variety of symptoms that you are describing sounds like a viral infection. The middle ear fluid should cause a hearing loss. Sores in the nose for a month and a half have no relation to middle ear fluid. A rash on the neck, face, and chest along with the middle ear fluid sounds like a viral infection or most likely an allergic problem. See you primary care doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My 1mo has a rash on her cheeks, ears, head, and neck. Is that normal? What can I do in order to go away or calm down?

Baby rashes: The most common reason for those bumps is the use of the so called "baby products" like Baby Magic and Johnson and Johnson. While they smell nice, the give a large percentage of babies a rash. Wash the baby with dove sensitive skin soap (liquid or bar) and in between just wash with warm water. Nothing else is required. This also can be baby acne which is an effect of your hormones/no treatment. ...Read more

Been taking apo-sulfatrim for four days, developed a rash on neck and weird red spots on roof of mouth, tingling all over body. What should I do?

Discontinue: Stop taking the medicine. It sounds like you may have an allergy to the medicine. If you continue taking the medicine, there is a chance that you can go into anaphylactic shock. If it is bad enough, death will soon follow. I'd call your doc and let him/her know. You may have allergy to sulfa drugs. ...Read more

I have a ten year old girl that started out with a headache and a sour throat and a fever of a 104. Breaking out in a rash now could it be measles?

Strep??: If your daughter has been vaccinated with 2 MMR vaccine, it is unlikely that she has measles. On the other hand, it is very possible that she may have strep throat which needs to be treated with antibiotics. Strep throat is often associated with sore throat, headache, stomachache, and fever. A strep rash is usually referred to a scarlet fever. You should be seen by your doctor for treatment. ...Read more
