Have itchy rashes on arms, back, knees and stomach for 7days and no fever. My platele is 180, and I am HBsAG reactive. Is it just a viral infection?

Probable

Rash
But only time will tell. If they go away in about 2 weeks, then I'd not lose sleep over it. If not, then you may need to see your doctor or dermatologist. A drug reaction can cause a rash as well.

I've been sick with what doc call a upper respiratory viral infection! I've developed a ring like rash! I have a pic n would like to post. Any ideas?

Go back to doctor

Rash
I can't see your rash and a better exam is for it to be seen personally. In your area and some other areas there, there's a tick bite that can cause erythema migraines which is the highlight of lyme disease. The disease can present only like flu or viral syndrome or worse but presentation is varied. So go back to the MD to be looked at.

The backs of my hands have started itching severely. No rash, until I scratch. This happened once before after an ugly viral infection.

Eczema?

Skin_rash
This may be development of an eczema-like rash. Sometimes, it can be secondary to something you are coming into contact with on the skin. However, it may also be an infection (bacterial or fungal) among other things.

My Daughter has had a viral infection going on 2 weeks we gave her ibprofene and now she has a rash all over her face,arms,legs and now her back.

See a doctor

Viral_infections
This may either be an allergic reaction, or the rash is the result of whatever illness is in progress. Two weeks is too long to have a "viral" infection and not have it seen by a competent professional. See a doctor ASAP
