Develop rashes after getting cold, flu or stomach bug. Spreading. Have strep throat. Skin peels when rashes disappears

Hi Every time I get a cold or flu or stomach bug I develop a rash which starts on my stomach and looks like red dots which join and look like sunburn , this then spreads over most of my body and sometimes my face. The rash is not itchy or swollen. Once the rash disappears after a few days my hands, palms & fingers peel constantly for a few weeks. I have this condition for about 15 years and had my tonsils out 4 years ago as the ENT consultant said it was strep throat . But even after having the tonsils out, which did help for a year, the rash is now back.

After reading your history it appears that you might have developed allergic dermatitis to some contact allergen. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area otherwise these areas are very prone for getting secondary infection. You can apply an steroid cream such as cortisone cream. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Apply a plenty of moisturizers over the affected area. If these increase the n consult a dermatologist for higher treatment
