Brief Answer: Viral exanthema Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query I have gone through the photos you have sent, it looks like a viral exanthematous rash. Here are my suggestions to you 1. Calamine lotion to be applied over the rash three times a day to reduce the itching. Apply it generously 2. Tab Levocetrizine 10 mg can be taken twice daily once in the morning and night for the rash and the itching 3. Approach a dermatologist and get complete blood count done to rule out infection 4.Generalised body ache including rib and muscle pain are frequently seen in viral infection, you can take Tab Paracetamol 500 mg for the pain three times daily. Please do not consider the drugs suggested as my prescription to you, please approach a physician for a general examination and treatment I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me Regards
