A rash appeared about a month ago. It started on my stomach and then moved down to my thighs and up to my chest and neck. It was very itchy. About 4/5 days later I was very ill with flu like symptoms.
Since then I have had all types of rashes appearing.
I was well for about a fortnight when the same rash as the first time came back. The following day I ended up with the same flu-like symptoms and was very ill for a few days again.
I have also had a red rash with bumps appearing and swelling, and also a 'meingitis-like' rash which will not fade under a glass. It does eventually go after a few days but then it appears in a different place a few days later.
I have been to see doctors three times now. The first one (when the rash reappeared but before I was ill) said it was the end of a virus and take anti-histamines. The next doctor I went to for the flu like symptoms and he told me I had white lumps on my throat and gave me anti-biotics but ignored the rashes I was telling him about. The next doctor seemed baffled by the rash I was showing him (at the time it was the the red bumpy rash) and said that he thought it was possibly an allergic reaction to something I had eaten (not something I had made contact with as it appears in random areas but never all over). I have been trying to figure out what it could be but it doesn't seem to be anything in particular. I have never had food allergies before, or any allergies for that matter!
I just don't know what it is now! It seems odd that I am getting three different types of rash and never appearing in the same place! The one that does not fade is the one that worries me most but only because of the connotations with meningitis, which I assume I do not have as it does always go eventually (after a few days) and I assume I would be very ill by now!!!
In general I am healthy. I have had a cold which i have found hard to shake since about last October but generally live a healthy and busy lifestyle. Can anyone please help. Everytime a rash reappears it worries me!
