What causes itchy rashes all over the body after a fever?

I had a fever 2days ago,now I have various sized patches all over my body that itch/burn and exhibit raised bumps and are bright red. If I take benadryl with in a half hour they recede and almost disappear...3-4 hours later they return. Most intense neck/hairline,palms of hands,inner elbows abdomen where clothes touch skin. Gland at jawline and groin are swollen and sensitive to touch.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

I understand your concern. Your symptoms seem to be related to an allergic reaction.
I suggest you to:

1) Take antihistamines daily for a week.
2) Take prescribed corticosteroids.
3) Use calamine lotion locally.
4) Take cool showers.

Hope my answer was helpful. Thank you for the query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
