Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that your husband has are more likely to be due to a generalized viral infection. This can be associated with a mild rash as you have described. If there is no improvement after taking acetaminophen and rest for two days then consider visiting a physician for evaluation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
