What do blue rashes on the body indicate?

My FIL has developed symptoms like shingles but it’s not shingles. He has raised very large blue like patches speading around his body. It started on the abdomen and has rapidly spread. He is very weak and has no control of bladder or bowels. I’m very concerned. Email is YYYY@YYYY

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

At this point, without photographs or examination, it's difficult to solve your problems. Your problem needs an examination to be done.

What I can advise you is these rashes could be petechiae. If you send us some photographs and follow-up then we can tell something about the problem to solve it, hope you understand the limitation of online consultation and send us photographs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
