Fever and fine pimples over whole body, what can it be?

Fever and fine pimples over whole body, what can it be?

Scarlet Fever: Many rashes are viral in nature, and are generally not dangerous. They resolve on their own when the infection is cleared by the immune system. One exception to this is Scarlet Fever, the combination of Strep throat and rash (the rash usually only involves the face and chest but can be more extensive). Strep infections require antibiotic treatment for cure and prevention of complications. ...Read more

My 2 1/2 year old seems to have rash all over his body almost like little red pimples along with he gets fevers what could this be?

Virus or strep: Sounds like a viral or streptococcal infection. The latter is potentially more serious as untreated it may lead to heart, kidney, or nervous system disease. A rapid strep test and, if necessary, a throat culture can make this diagnosis and determine if antibiotics are necessary. You should have your toddler seen by the pediatrician. ...Read more

I don't have a fever but my body feels hot sometimes on my chest, tingling sensation all over and more in hands and feet. I have a raised pimple like rash on forearm?

Need more info: Rashes and unusual feelings should be monitored closely. Without further history it's hard to determine risks. Have you been outdoors lately? Tick bite? New medications? I would encourage you to get an appointment with a medical professional for a full exam and history. Drink plenty of fluids and rest in the meantime. ...Read more

Viral rash: Although it is impossible to say for sure without actually looking at the rash, the sequence of events (fever, then rash) would suggest that this is a viral rash, such as roseola. If the temperature is coming down and your child is drinking and acting fairly normally, symptomatic treatment and observation are all that are needed. If worried--call your pediatrician! ...Read more

Can a primary HIV rash occure as 3-4 pimples on the back, without fever or other symptoms? Thank you

Can a primary HIV rash occure as 3-4 pimples on the back, without fever or other symptoms? Thank you

Probably not: The rash with HIV tends to be red and flat or a bit raised. People have other flu like symptoms as well. Pimples are probably just pimples. If lots more emerge on only one side of the body in a strip this could be shingles. If the same cluster always comes back in the same place, this could be an unusual location for herpes simplex. ...Read more

3yo had temp 102 for 3 days. Fever went away. Has 4 pimples around mouth area that are crusting over. No where else. H/f/mouth?

Possible: It may be possible it is hand foot and mouth disease which is caused by a specific coxsackievirus. It may be some other viral illness as well. Does pt have sores in the mouth? Is he/she having difficulty drinking fluids? How is the patient acting? Any other symptoms? Is the rash anywhere else? Make sure pt stays hydrated and watch for other signs and symptoms. ...Read more

Manage your acne: Do not try to figure out why you have it. If this is actual acne, it can be managed scientifically until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide / retinoids acid has not cleared you in two weeks, your personal physician can add prescription-strength meds that will. Best wishes. ...Read more

Two year old has pimple like bumps on chin and looks like a light rash on chest and back. No fever, no symptoms. What could it be?

Rash: Difficult to know without seeing it. 1 possibility is that it may be staph or strep on his chin, called impetigo with a more generalized rash that often accompanies it. If this is the case he requires antibiotics to protect particularly his kidneys. Have the rash examined and get a confirmed diagnosis to help with his care. All the best in getting this sorted out. ...Read more
