Suffering from headache, fever, sorethroat, nausea and rashes

I am 18. Five days ago, I started having a headache . I disregarded it until I started having fever coupled with sorethroat. I was given antibiotics , panadol. I can t remember the names of the drugs. I got severe nausea and 2 days back red rashes began appearing on my arm and palm. It got worse. They look like blemishes. The rashes are fewer on my legs, abdomen , back; but worse on my face, chest and arms. The drugs I took were stopped for fear of drug reaction. It was however ruled out, since I used to take them long before and had no such reaction to them. I am waiting for a lab result but I am direly impatient. Please tell me what could be the problem

My 7 year old daughter complains of headache , stomach ache, sore throat , and has a fever . This happened about a month ago and the ER checked for strep with a negative result. They prescribed antibiotics and she was fine. Now it seems to be back again. Is this bacterial? What can we do to reduce the chance of it returning again and again?

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
