Ok so I'm 23 yrs old and I'm fairly healthy I stay active and have never really been sick . So I guess it was tuesday morning I noticed a big patch of itchy red irritated skin on my lower back and I didn't really think much of it then I woke up Wed Morning just generally not feeling well ...feeling a bit tired but I went to work and made it through the day so I got home and was getting in the shower and I noticed a patch of itchy irritated skin on the outside of my left leg and by this point the patch on my lower back was tender to the touch . Thursday the same kinda thing I was feeling a lil crummy and so Finally friday I go to the doctors and I had told them that I was feeling bad and I had a slight sore throat and mild headaches and kinda tired but it all seemingly started with this rash . So she swabbed the back of my throat for strep and it came back negative so she prescribed me some antibiotics and told me it was a bacteria infection and didn't really give me much detail so I get the medicine and some Gold Bond Cream . So it's saturday night now and the rash has gone to my chest, upperback, and arms and they look like acne ....some of the bumps have whiteheads on them . The Ones on my back and leg look like they're going away but now I have these other patches . I've been looking up different symptoms and causes on the web and I noticed that Scarlet Fever kinda sounds like what I have except in Scarlet Fever you have the headaches and fever before the rash ......when in my case the rash was first . So I'm currently taking Cephalexin which is a generic for Keflex , I'm using the gold bond cream and taking some tylenol . So help would be great , does this sound like anything you've heard of before . Please Help !
