could it be an allergic reaction to some of the medicine u may hv taken while sick? Try soaking in baking soda and warm water...hydrocortisone cream is good to relieve itching as well.

Its a rash

My daughter broke out one time with a rash all over, but mostly on her chest and back. No other symptoms, except the week before she was cranky and low fever...she was about 2. The doctor told me that after certain viruses your body will make a rash...it's the last sign of the virus, like saying it's gone. I thought it was strange, but I've told several people this through the years, and it turns out to happen more often than you think.

my little girl (she is 2) does that everytime she has the flu. and scratches like mad- her doctor never seemed concerned. It always goes away on its own.

My daughter also did this, and sometimes it comes back when she runs a high fever too. But it always goes away and I even took her to the doc just in case and he said it was from a virus too.

Rash after flu

Yes, my son & I both had the flu & the rash showed up after the flu symptoms went away. I began using hydrocortizone cream immediately. However, my son also developed a sinus infection. When I took him in for the sinus infection the doc also looked at both of our rashes. He said we must have gotten into poision ivy or something. But....my son started on antibiotics for the sinus infecton & his rash is gone. I'm still using hydrocortisone & still have the rash. I I I also saw my dermatologist and my internist. Both think it's "contact dermatitis" & recommended hydrocortisone cream. I think it's left over virus. Guess I'll go back in this week.

If you had flu symptoms, it may be Mono. With the rash and all. My daughter had that. She had flu like symptoms, and a rash. I took her to the doctor and that's what it was. Maybe you need to get it checked out. I hope everything turns out okay. GOD BLESS...

Both me and my youngest son are still both coughing like mad, he is covered in a fine rash on his chest and back and achey joints. I have a fever blister, great!:-0. Oh yeah, I'm easily tired. Other than that, we are mending. But the rash has my attention, I wanted to make sure it was not a sign, but a result.
It sounds like

I'm sorry to say, but it sounds like mono to me. It's on a rampage here!(Concerned) is right, the symptoms you have, are that of mono. Strep also is on the rise too! That's where the rash hits you is on the belly, and chest. I hope you get better. Go to the doc and get a penicillin, and a steroid shot. That's what I got, and feel so much better. I too couldn't hardly go, was so tired, and had flu like symptoms. It might be worse if you don't go and get some blood work done. Have a good day.

I had the h1n1 flu and now have a terriby itchy rash all over my chest and neck. My Dr thought it was a food allergy, but I disagree as I have read numerous reports of people having a rash after the flu. I even wrote to the CDC about it, but they didn't answer my question directly. I also personally know others who have had the rash after the flu. I'd like to know how long it lasts! I had a shot of prendisone and it's helped a little.

my baby and I have had the flu and we too have had a rash. My son actually broke out about two months ago all over. I thought he had measles but when I took him to the doctor she said it was an infection he had and it was coming out on him. It went away in about 3 weeks. Mine however is now, I am broke out on my face, neck, and chest looks like a heat rash sort of and it itches I have had it for about 2 weeks. I thought I was having an allergic reaction to my shampoo but that is not it. I am taking Cipro now nad the rash has gotten somewhat better. And I also have had 3 fever blisters. I was wondering about this rash if it too was maybe an infection of some sort. I look terrible.

I had the flu earlier this week (don't know if it was h1n1 or seasonal variety) and still have the cough and mild symptoms. I started to get a rash on my hands 2 days ago and just this evening have broken out in a rash on my feet too. It sounds completely different from the rash other people are complaining of. I thought it might be an allergy to something I was taking so I haven't taken anything for the last 25 hours and the rash is still getting worse. I was just wondering if the rash is simply another symptom of the flu or if I have a coincidental allergy...?
