My mom developed an odd rash a couple days/weeks ago. It was spotted red and very irregular all over her body especially arms and legs, it was EXTREMELY itchy and she got aches (joint and muscle). She has a lot of autoimmune problems which is what the doctors said it was, the only thing is, now I have have the same rash! I got it two days ago and experienced a lot of pain especially in my legs that affects my muscles and my achilles tendon, that was so bad I tried to walk up some stairs but had to sit down for a while before I could finish and then sit again(my dad felt the tendon and said it was flared) so I'm wondering, is there a virus or bacteria that causes an odd rash and symptoms like my mom and I got? Thanks!
