What symptoms do skin rash ,dizziness,fatigue and recurring fever indicate ?

Hi, I am a seventeen year old girl and I have developed a rash on my stomach that has began to spread up to my upper arm. I first developed this rash when I was twelve. I didn t think much of it, but now since it has began to spread it has become a concern. It is flaky and very itchy. Even after I apply lotion it is still very itchty. They are brown-ish circles. It has just recently began to increase in itchiness. In the past month I have felt very sick. I have never in my life fainted, but I came very close two times. I began to black out and become dizzy. I almost completley passed out I was sweating profusely and then I sat down and I was fine. I had no anxiety ..I was fine all day and I had eaten..I made sure of it. My eating habits are very healthy. My knees were not locked. I have no idea what brought this spell on. Also, I have been feeling a litte depressed, more than usual, recently as well. Very tired, regardless of how much sleep I get... I have been running a fever on and off all month..and just feeling sick as well. I never get sick. I have also been expericing more headaches. Lupus crossed my mind, but I am unsure if I am just jumping to conclusions...also diabetes crossed my mind, that runs in my family. I was unsure what category to put this in... Anyways, I was just hoping for a diagnosis and what steps I should take to get rid of my symptoms.. Thank you so much...

My 15 month old daughter has developed a pimply rash that won t go away. It started over a month ago with just what looked like one large pimple amidst what looked like a simple rash. I applied Diprogenta (Betaethasone dipropionate Gentamicin sulfate) and although the rash disappeared overnight, the pimple stayed for over a month. Its redness would wane and then come back with the rash, but would look better after I applied the cream so I always put it down to food allergies. I eventually took her to the doctor after about a month, and was given a local balm (no idea what s in it, but it smells like burnt hair) and Metonate (Betamethosone) cream. The doc said it was Scabies, that I should apply the balm twice in the afternoon & evening, and the cream twice in the morning & late morning every day - this was 3 days ago. Since then, the pimple has multiplied, and she now has several of these angry, red pimples, along with the rash. There seems to be no itching, only these red pimples that now seem to multiply on a daily basis. Help!!

The middle of my forehead is swollen. I can press my fingers on it and the depression marks stay there for a bit which I assume is caused by fluid. I also have a rash from my neck area into my chest. My temp. is 98 degrees. What could be causing this? I also have a slight headache.

My son is two months old. He has been having problems with constipation, distended abdomen and partial rectal prolapse since he was born. He also has a red bumpy rash all over his face and head which seems to get worse after he eats. We had him on nutrimigen for three weeks which did not work and now we have him on similac alemintum which he has been on for about two weeks. He still has not improved at all. Do you think he could be lactose intolerant?
