Dry rash on neck, scalp and torso. Nausea, sweating. No itching. Coincidental symptoms?

Hi, my 19 year old son has a dry spotty rash mostly on his torso, neck and scalp which has been increasing over the last few days. It s not itchy but this evening he feels nauseaus and is clammy but not hot to touch. I though the rash was fungal but now with hhim feeling unwell I m not sure sure....maybe the 2 symptoms are coincidental?
