Features are suggestive of a viral syndrome.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist and would try my best to help you.

I have noted your husband's symptoms and they are suggestive of a viral syndrome, which can explain his symptoms.

You should get his complete blood counts done, mainly to exclude a low platelet count (in view of red blotches on his body).

Tylenol can be continued, as he should get better in a week's time.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
