My son, age 30, has developed strange recurring red blotches every time he gets sick. Anything from a cold to kidney stones has triggered it. The first time it was just on his stomach, then every time he get this it is worse, covers more area and is more intense. Over the past few years this occurs after the onset of any kind of illness. It resembles sunburn, is warm to the touch, and bright red. It even peals after a few days like a sunburn would do. The last occurrence covered almost all of the front of his body, and now started up the sides of his neck, down his legs and arms. With each occurance it seems to cover more area. The doctors do not seem to have any answers as to what it is. Has anyone else ever had a similar rash after being sick that is recurring and looks and feels like a sunburn? If so please include any information you may have as to what it could be.
