Rashes all over the body, itchy, bump with pus on inner thigh, aches. Suggestions?

Hi Dr. I have a dime sized bump filled with a marbling of clear fluid and pus on my inner thigh, just above my knee . The skin around it is raised and red. It throbs sometimes and aches other times. It started 2 days ago and looked like a small pimple but has grown steadily in size. I also have this itchy rash all over especially on my arms, legs, back of my thighs and ears, neck and face. They also look like little pimples but are extremely itchy. This rash started 5 days ago. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there. It does appear that you have some sort of bacterial infection in the form of an abscess, ecthyma or furunculosis around your knee region. The other rash appears to be a hypersensitivity reaction to the primary problem. Perhaps a course of antibiotics & antihistamines are the order of the day. You will require to see a doc for the prescriptions. I would be happy to recommend a dermatologist in your area should you wish me to. Cheers & Good luck!
