Hi Hariuk88,

Thank you for your question. Fever and cough can be caused by numerous medical conditions. These symptoms can be accompanied by other symptoms for instance runny / blocked nose, sore throat, facial pain, chest pain, headache, muscle pain, loss of appetite, etc. The following are several medical conditions that can cause those symptoms:

upper respiratory tract infection throat and / or tonsil infection sinusitis pneumonia (infection of lung tissue) tuberculosis pleural effusion (fluid is collected between the pleural space; pleura is the lining of the lung and chest wall) etc On the other hand, red spots on the neck can be caused by allergic reaction, dermatitis, folliculitis (inflammed hair follicles), insect bite, prurigo, etc.

You are recommended to have a consultation with a doctor as doctor needs further information about your symptoms and to examine you. Doctor may do further investigation for exaple blood test, sputum test, chest xray, CT scan, to help in establishing the diagnosis. The treatment will be determined once the cause of your symptoms is known.

Please follow the following recommendation:

keep drinking plenty of fluid have enough rest eat more nutritious food avoid smoking avoid scratching the red spots, you can apply cool compress, salicylic powder, or calamine lotion to reduce the itch take paracetamol to manage fever Should you have any other concerns, do no hesitate to seek nearby medical attention.
