Cause for rash in the hands after fever?

I am a female adult. I had a fever for a few days temperature 101. Fever has gone but I developed an itchy rash which has started on my hands and now seems to be covering my body. I also have a dry cough and am wondering what these symptoms might mean?

Hi,

It could be either a drug rash or a viral rash.I would recommend you to take antihistaminic like tablet cetirizine 10 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching for 5-7 days.

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

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
