At The Beginning Of Last Week, I Came Down With Strep Throat, Which Lasted Several Days. I Had The Usual Symptoms Associated With Strep Throat. Approx. 3-4 Days Following The Strep Throat I Started Breaking Out With A (blistering) Rash That Now Covers My Whole Body. Approx. The 10th Day Following The Strep Throat The Skin Around My Finger Nails And The Skin On My Fingers Is Peeling Away. I Still Have All The Symptoms Of Strep Throat (aching Body, Feeling Of Being Tired And Worn Out All Of The Time, A Constant Fever Not Higher Than 101, Etc.), Although, My Throat Does Not Hurt As Bad As It Initally Did. I Went To The E.r. Last Night In The Hopes That The Dr. Would Tell Me What Was Wrong With Me. He Never Even Took Blood Or Even A Culture. He Said That I Had A Virus Of Some Sort And Sent Me Home With An Antibiotic And A Steriod.

Has Anyone Had Symptoms Similar To Mine? Or Any Ideas As To What I Have Or What I Should Do? I'm So Tired Of Feeling Awful!

Many Thanks

  • When I was younger I had scarlet fever and had that peeling of the skin. Sheesh you didn.t mention any antibiotics being used absulutely nesecary with strep!! My younger daughter was constantly getting fevers on and off doctors were stumped I figured she had leukemia turns out neg throat culture but the step was in her blood system thank god it was found with blood cultures, pretty dangerous if untreated with antibiotics.
