Rash behind ears working down body

I have had a rash since saturday evening it is now Friday and it just seems to be getting worse it started behind ears working down body. But today i seem to have more on neck and face. My temperature has been changing from about 37.3 to 37.8 and i have been to the toilet today and my stool is very soft. I have had nausea on and off since rash started. The rash is itchy sometimes but not constantly. I am off my food and water also. Any ideas what this could be? I am a young adult female with hypothyroidism and pernicious anemia and which is all stable according to blood results taken 10 days ago. The spots are like pimples but red and the area is red to. Also about 18 months ago i had a small amount of acne roscea on face. But that cleared up

Hello there,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. The kind of rashes you have mentioned, although it is difficult to appreciate unless they are seen by the doctor themselves,could be viral exanthem if it is accompanied by fever.It could also be herpetic rashes, an allergic one.After an insect bite, at times such rashes do develop.If they come in crops like white blisters, they could be of chicken pox.I would suggest , pl consult with a dermatologist.

hi danni;
welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
This rash is surely not pimples as it is spreading.Many rashes do come with fever like typhoid or viral fever.Another thing i needed to ask is why you are off the food & water.The rash has been there almost a week so it is now necessary to consult a doctor;remember skin infections are better treated if a doctor can see so that he can differentiate why it has come.Please consult a doctor.
take care
