What Do Viral Rashes Look Like
Hello doctor, I have small red spots over my torso and some on my arm that look like a rash. I'm not sure what it is? Recently had a viral.
Rash: The number one reason for rashes is from a virus. If the rash is itchy, you could try some Benadryl (though might make you sleepy). You could use a little over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. Have you taken any medicines recently (another possible cause)? Viral-induced rashes are self-limiting - they will go away on their own. If you aren't too uncomfortable, i would just watch it for now. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

I have viral exanthem for 2 days now. How long will the rashes completely fade? It is however concentrated in my face, will it not lead to dark spots?
If indeed: Most viral exanthema go away within a week or two. However if this is confined only to your face, consider a phototoxic or photoallergic reaction to the sun (often medication associated). Do note that you are in copenhagen where the set will set for a long time soon enough. I actually attended a concert in tivoli garden about 1 1/2 years ago. Couldn't get over so much drinking on weekends. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

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: 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. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
