Thanks for your query.

The fever, cough and the rashes on the body makes me suspicious of you having a viral infection.I would suggest you to get your self examined and be placed on treatment early before it progresses to discomfort.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

during this night the rashes are starting to fade. Do you still think it could be an infection?

Thanks for writing back.

Yes, the episode of fever even mild makes me think it to be a infection rather than any allergic reaction which usually do not present with fever.

I would still recommend you be examined by your treating doctor.He would easily rule out the chances of infection, which is safe.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.
