Rashes all over body, itching. Red & bumpy. Had sore throat, earache. Suggestions?

Ive had a sore throat and earache for 7days. Clinic said I have an ear infection but now I have a rash all over my body that itches all day, especially at night. Its bumpy and red and is spread out on legs, arms, stomach and neck. They weren't sure at the clinic what it was from. I don't have a dr. or insurance so I can't afford another visit to the dr.

welcome to health care magic.Thanks for writing here.

Rash developing after sore throat and ear ache suggest some viral cause.

Based on your description it is most probably pitryasis rosecea.It is usually self limiting and will subside with time.

You can take antihistaminics like cetrizine for reliving itch and apply a mild steroidal lotion like desonide lotion two to three times daily.

I hope this can solve your query.Take care.
