What is the remedy for sore throat and rashes?

Hi - I ve had a sore throat for 5 days now, and in the last 3 days I seem to have a slight rash which began at the top of the right side of my chest and is now on my left shoulder as well. The rash looks like little red pimples. I don t have many other cold-like symptoms - an occasional dry cough, slightly stinging eyes, but no real congestion or anything.
