Brief Answer:
About the child's rash:

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
You mentioned that the child didn't have fever, the picture attached does not suggest for serious pathologies (very probably it is due to a viral infection especially if he/she has nasal congestion and cough, eye redness ect.)
If the child is in good general health and has no other symptoms, you can simply observe the rash for a few days. Many types of rashes will disappear without treatment.
If the rash is accompanied by high fever, breathing difficulties, vomiting, or reduced general health (when the child is not acting right), or if it persists for more than 3 days, please see a physician in person.
There is no need for local treatment actually.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta

She continues to have a high fever and at times going down to 93temp and back up to 102-103. Yesterday they took her out of ICU. Is that common to be removed from ICU even if your still so sick? what are her options? She also is very confused and can t make a sentence.

Last year, i started having that pain in my tonsils, ears hurt and having a high fever that lasts up to two weeks. This happens almost every 3months up to now. I never consulted a Doctor. I'm 19 years old, female. I remembered the days when i swallowed my boyfriends semen, this is where it all started. I drink paracetamol and anti bacterial, lozenges and pineapple juice for relief. Will it be throat cancer when i get old? What is this?
