Hi I have had a bout of the real flu . first time in 20 years. I am 46 yrs old, female. A couple of days after I got the flu I got a small dotty rash over arms and tummy. This has now spread to the inside of my thighs, back, tummy and arms and looks like sunburn and itches like blazes. I have bathed in pinetarsol for the last 2 evenings, I have been taking antihistamines for a week now. the antihistamines help for a few hours and then the itching and discomfort starts again with a vengance. I went to the doctor a week ago and he says it is a virus rash. I have had this rash for a weeek now and it is not getting better.
