The differential diagnosis is broad. It could be from Mononucleosis. Aspirin intake after Viral fever cause rash(Reye's Syndrome). Influenza with rash is rare.

The treatment involves bed rest, Paracetamol, decongestants, antihistamines, hot liquids. It will get better over time. If the fever continues you need course antibiotics. A avoid pencillins.
