I have had a recurrence of symptoms for the last 3 menstrual cycles and I'm wondering if it might be mild toxic shock syndrome? Symptoms start on day 4 with high fever, chills and racing pulse. Hands go on to swell with palmar erythema, some digit extremities go purply red and painful. My face swells and goes "sunburned" looking, none of this is itchy. My tongue goes bright red and swollen, painful at the back, last time also had a yellow/white crust in the morning. The inside of my mouth is red and sensitive to taste and temperature, feels a bit like I'm sucking a lemon. I have been sick once each time. Also I get a rash up my inner forearms and inner tops of thighs. Thrush infection is present which does not respond that well to cream or a diflucan tablet. Tampons difficult to use due to dryness. About a week later hands and palms peel and the erythema subsides. Blood results show high ALT and bilirubin which revert to normal after the symptoms subside then elevate again when they reoccur. Generally I feel tired, loss of appetite/nausea for about a week while all this is going on. There is also some mild nerve disturbance with pins and needles/burning in hands and feet. Any insight greatly appreciated thanks.:)

Is it sensitive skin or something else?
