What Is A Raised Rash Around The Thyroid Area Suggestive Of?

I developed a raised rash on my neck in about the thyroid area.....I have had it about two days and not spreading or getting any better. Not sure what caused it other than some sort of allergy ..... I seem to have developed a slight cold since getting the rash also... Any ideas on what this could be?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

If you are developing a rash along with cough/cold symptoms then it is possible that the rash is a viral exanthem which is a rash that develops along with a viral infection.

The rash would normally resolve along with or soon after the infection has resolved.

I hope this helps
