What is the cause of these symptoms?

Asked by User1234 (1points) 1 month ago

Recently I have been feeling very ill, beginning with a sore throat and a headache with pressure behind the eyes. Then there was a lot of body aches, a fever as well. However, it happened very suddenly.

Also, about a week before this, my neck broke out into a itchy rash, and my arms are also a little strange, with small red dots appearing that were also itchy. I had not gotten a flu shot this year, so mainly I think it could be the flu (have got the vaccine for COVID, but still need to get tested). Is the rash unrelated, or is it possible it is related?

Sounds more like covid than flu. Flu almost always has a high fever and sinus pressure is rare. Covid is know for sinus pressure and fever is not always observed.

Get a test if you want to know.

There is some reports of a covid rash. The rash also might be unrelated and some sort of allergic reaction.

Measles has a high fever usually. Chicken Pox is very itchy.

No one here can really guess what you have.

Stay away from others, wear a mask. Call your doctor and/or get a covid test. Whether you are positive or negative for covid you need to treat your rash probably.

I am sorry to have to say this User1234 but this question should not be asked on a general question and answer site because it is doubtful that any subscriber can give you a proper answer.

Even if there are qualified medics or doctors here they still would not be able to diagnose you without an examination an/or tests.

You must agree that the sensible thing to do is to contact your surgery and get a proper diagnosis and treatment.

You don’t know but it may be contagious but please don’t fret about it being Covid until or unless it is diagnosed by a doctor.

Good luck
