Doctor can evaluate: Rashes can be hard to figure out without looking at them. Cold symptoms can be seen with colds, strep throat, flu, allergies, etc... A rash can happen sometimes if a person's body is reacting to the germ causing the cold symptoms (sort of like an allergic reaction).

I am so sorry i cannot help you! get seen. ...Read more
