Broke out in a itchy rash 3 times in 4 weeks. Itchy skin all over when it happens. Along with nerve pain. Muscle ache and sore throat. Allergies?

Itchy rash: While itchy rashes can be from allergies, muscle aches, sore throat and pain are not commonly seen with allergies. Since diagnosing rashes is challenging without a picture, if a person takes a photo to show their doctor, it can help with the diagnosis. ...Read more

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Unlikely: These symptoms can be interpreted many ways, but if leukemia were present (which is very improbable) the symptoms would not improve, but get progressively worse. Sounds as if you have been reading texts looking for a diagnosis and are learning that there is more to medical practice than is written down. See a good clinician. Good luck and get better soon. ...Read more

Went on vacation and started feeling achy with a mild sore throat. The next day I developed a non itchy rash that started on my chest and then to back. It has been 10 days now. No rash but I still feel achy?

Sounds viral: Your complaints sound to be viral in nature. Sometimes aches and pains can be present for days to weeks after a viral illness. If symptoms continue for another weeks or so I would see a physician. Other symptoms to be watchful for include fevers, return of the rash, swelling or warmth to the joints for example to name a few. Also if you know you were bitten by an insect, it may be worth cing a doc. ...Read more

My 6 year old present with an itchy rash and fever. Yesterday complained about a sore throat.?

Viral infection: This sounds like a common viral infection. The sore throat was the key - since that's where the infection most likely took hold. I would show this to a doctor ASAP-so they can try to figure out 'what' is causing the infection and therefore direct treatment. Hopefully your child is updated on all their shots, as unfortunately there's a resurgence in diseases that should have gone away (ie. measles) ...Read more

Hi fevr, sore throat, cough, 8 itchy rash w heads. Spread 2 n hand 4 on ankles. Week later all crusted but last 1 itchypain 3mm fluid filled bubble! Pox?

Unlikely chickenpox: A rash with fluid filled blisters is suggestive of chickenpox, but the distribution is atypical. Chickenpox usually starts with lesions on the abdomen and then spreads up and out and includes the entire body. Lesions that are limited to hands and ankles along with a sore mouth or throat are more consistent with a Coxsackie virus, often called hand foot mouth virus. An exam would confirm. ...Read more

Sore throat appeared suddenly slight nose drip hardly noticable. After about 3-4 days I had very itchy rash under my breast and hips?

See Your Doctor: Sore throat with nasal "drip" suggests you have an upper respiratory infection likely of a viral nature. Viruses also cause rashes & even hives which are itchy. Rashes have many causes & need visual inspection to diagnose. Strep throat is also a possibility & requires an antibiotic. Calamine lotion can help the itching however you must see your doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

Sore throat small patches of bumpy. And itchy rash on elbo top of foot and knee pus pockets in throat? No runny nose or caugh. What could it be?

Doctor can check: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Strep throat can occur with a rash, but some viruses also cause rashes. ...Read more

Itching around nose and mouth. Clear/pink hard bumps around nose and under eyes. Itchy eyes and flaky skin. Also mild sore throat for 2 months. HSV?

Exam needed.: HSV is unlikely. The redness/itching/flaking is most consistent with seborrheic dermatitis (especially if scalp is also flaky), but that doesn't explain the chronic sore throat. Let your doctor examine you, and perhaps do a throat culture. ...Read more
