Fever, sore back, headache, rash on lower left leg, redness, slightly raised in areas, tender to touch. Causes for symptoms?

My nineteen yearold son woke up two days ago with a fever and extremely sore back and horrible headache that did not go away for almost two days. The headache is better and his back is better but now he has a rash on his lower left leg. It is red and slightly raised in areas. Not sure what this could be it is also tender to the touch

It seems like your son is suffering an acute attack of viral exanthematous fever. It may be a simple flu, or even Dengue or other vector borne diseases.

Please get his complete blood count done along with the platelet count.

Treatment is supportive. Give him plenty of fluids to drink and fresh fruits and salads to eat.

Anti-pyretics like Paracetamol depending on his weight for the next 2 to 3 days and adequate bed rest will help him.

I wish him speedy recovery.
