Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more

Swollen occipital bone and nodes near it very itchy, also itchy rash all over my body. What can I do.

Nondiagnostic: Without inspecting the type of rash, no specific diagnosis can be made. The lymph nodes are most likely reacting to the rash itself. I recommend a consultation by your physician or dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. In the meantime try antihistamine like benadryl (causes drowsiness) or Claritin (loratadine) which doesn't cause drowsiness. Try to think of any new exposure to foods or other substances. ...Read more

I am breastfeeding and just getting over a itchy rash all over my body. Today I feel hot and cold similar to flu like symptoms without the aches pains?

Possible mastitis: Any time you get chills and fever while breast-feeding, your gynecologist will want to know about it. It's quite common for a nursing mom to develop an infection in her breast, called mastitis. Chills and fever could be an early sign of this, but you will probably get local soreness and redness of one breast and body aches too, if that is what you have. If not very sick, probably a routine virus. ...Read more
