Red, itchy rash on ears, eyebrows and cheeks that spread to entire face, fever, headaches. What is this ?

Good morning Doctor, Last week Wednesday I started to get a red, itchy rash on my ears, eyebrows and cheeks that then spread to my entire face by Friday. Developed fever and headaches on Friday too. Started using stop itch creams. Unfortunately the rash spread to the inner sections of my elbows late Friday and really flared up over the weekend. The rash has started spreading to my neck , chest areas. Could not sleep last night because it was itching and burning all day and night. Woke up this morning with swollen eyes. The area around my mouth, a circle is not effected with a rash...only a few bumps on the line of the lip. What type of rash do I have?

Thanks for writing in.

Rash you are describing can be tinea carporis ,contact dermatitis, viral exanthem.

My advise to you would be to use calamine lotion over the rash.
Also oral antihistaminics like cetirizine may be needed.
I encourage you to visit your dermatologist or general practitioner for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
