I had similar symptoms a few weeks ago! Easter Sunday, I woke w/ a fever, then the horrible headache came! Followed by aches and pains so bad I was in tears. The fevers lasted 3 days, then, on Thursday, I started getting a rash that looked like a heat rash on my fore arms and ankles. It spread up my arms and onto my knees for the next week! I was tired and weak for the next 2 weeks! I thought it was a heat rash from the fevers, but my daughter just started the rash today, she got the flu syptoms a week after I did. There are 2 other people that I know of that have had these syptoms followed by a rash since I got it. I'd really like to know what it is! If anybody out there has an answer....please, let us know!

No need to worry. It'll go off with time.. just take care of skin by keeping it clean.

No. This is the classic presentation of roseola- generally a harmless self-limiting illness.
