Have rashes, fever. Have cough after a deep breath. No medication till now. What can it be?

i had and still have inconsistent fever and dizziness for 3-4 days.
The fever went high enough once that even i could feel it with my own hand. I've been getting chills even though the day is really hot, i've been sweating when i sleep.
It had been 4 days, and i noticed light rashes on my body (chest, arms, hand, legs, even on face). i worked out today (weight lifting) then i noticed rashes all over. i do not know if i had them before, but i think working out triggered it, because i got itchy afterwards which is why i looked.

i just thought of this as simple cold or flu, but now that i get rashes all over my body, i am certain it's not simply cold. Especially when, i... do get clogged nose (started from day 3 at night) which goes away after approximately 3-5 minutes.

and there is a weird... "out-of-breath" sort of thing going on as well. this happens inconsistently as well, but when it happens, it happens just for ONE breath that i take which makes me want to cough. this happens mostly when i take a deep breath, but it happens rarely.

what type of disease is this? and what should i do about it?

Dermatologist 's  Response
hi, thanks for your query
You seem to have a viral infection and the skin rash seems to be a viral exanthematous reaction .
You need to contact a physician as early as possible for proper diagnosis so that appropriate treatment for fever ,cold and diziness can be started .
You may take the following measures for the rash:
-Avoid scratching
-Take oral antihistamine like benadryl twice a day
-Apply a soothing lotion like calamine over the involved areas
-Avoid exercise
The rashes will come down once treatment is started for fever .

I hope this solves your query
wish you a speedy recovery

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This is a viral fever
The diagnosis depends on the nature and distribution of the rash
Internist or Dermatologist ought to have a look for positive diagnosis...many of them benefit from anti-viral drugs... in addition to symptomatic and supportive measures...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
