Brief Answer:
You have chicken pox infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for the rash with blisters over the skin.
After analyzing all the pictures I can get that you have chicken pox infection.

It is a viral infection which manifest itself in form of rash and blisters. It is accompanied by fever and body ache.

I suggest you to meet a dermatologist or a physician at the earliest. In my patients I suggest them to take an antiviral tablet such as acyclovir or Famcyclovir or valacyclovir as per body weight.

Continue with paracetamol 8 hourly after meals. Take light food and take rest of few days.

I hope this helps. I will be happy to help you any further.

With regards,
