In brief: Think sunburn

The color is like a sunburn & the feel is like sandpaper.It tends to start first in the under pants area, armpits & folds of the arms with an interesting pale halo around the mouth.
If the if it started with a sore throat, the tongue is beefy red & tonsils swollen. It can be triggered by infection in other body areas.
