In brief: Never gone

You have not given much information but sick with a rash your cousin should be seen now.

In brief: Not the 1st thought

Common things are more common.
There are dozens of viral and some bacterial illnesses other than TSS that produce fever & rash in a patient. TSS patients are usually in coma rather quickly after disease onset. If your cousin is just sickly with a rash it is likely something else.
