Hey there, So, over the last 2-3 week Ive developed

Hey there,
So, over the last 2-3 week Ive developed patchy skin on the head of my penis, as well as very very small lesions just beneath the head.

Around the time they appeared my home also was also infected with lice, so Id been getting bug bites around my legs. The lice have been exterminated this week,

But im still concerned it could be something else,
My own search for the cause brings syphilis as a primary suspect, but this is the only symptom that appears and only loosely resembles how its suppose to manifest itself.

3 1/2 year old sick with fever over 3 weeks now-now seems like it is starting all over again! Help please...My 3 year old has been sick since Sat. Jan 8th. It started out just like a cold-with sniffles and congestion and fever. So, we treated it with Motrin (switching off with Tylenol ). During the week, the cold seemed to be getting much betthe. Then, that following Friday afternoon (6 days later) out of nowhere she started getting really congested all over again, had a stomachache and suddenly spiked a fever of around 105. Her pediatrician at first said it was the flu virus, but they have not been able to confirm this with swab tests. Between the second and third week of this, she had about 5 days of watery diarrhea . Since then, she has developed fever blisters outside and inside her mouth( her poor lips are splits and bleeding) and the fever has been ongoing (hovering around 100-101). She has been back to her pediatrician several times and they recently did a test for all known viruses that just came back negative! What is this? I appreciate any ideas you might have.

Hello, I am 28, 5 4 , and about 155-160lbs. My weight has not changed drastically in the past year, and I have no problems in my medical history . In the past 5 to 6 months I`ve developed these very red streaks on my upper-half of my inner thighs (they look like i scraped my leg on a shredder like object). Not scratch marks but coming up from under my skin , and feel bumpy to the touch. At first I thought that maybe they were vericose veins developing, but for this past month it has escalated and now the lower half of my inner thighs look constantly bruised and purple. Some days will be better than others, where the bruising will dissapear and the streaks lighten a bit, but some days are really bad where it hurts to even try to massage the area with light pressure . I ve also been developing a very quickly growing rash on my back that started on the nape of my neck and has now become a blotchy patten across my back (up to around the base of the bra-line). The rash only itches sometimes and is very mild, the redness seems to be worst right out of the shower. I m not sure if all these symptoms are related, I want to go see a doctor but I m not sure what type of doctor I need to go to either....I am hoping that asking on here will help me figure out what I need to do... I have not been sexually active in this timespan, and very rarely use any drugs. I smoke/drink but I have been for very long so I m not sure if its related, I excersise about 2-3times a week, walking/cardio classes. I do have to sit for work, but I try to walk around and stretch whenever possible, and have been wearing larger-size slacks so that theres no pressure on my legs, but its not getting any better. Thank you in advance!!
