The Body Feels Itchy And Has Red Spots, Accompanied By Fever, Chills, And Aching Rheumatic Pain
So, in the afternoon I experienced itching on the calf, I thought I was only bitten by a mosquito, then when I saw my body red spots and ad on the entire body and face but not too itchy. Then at night I felt fever and chills, I only took itching and paracetamol, the next morning the red spots were gone, but my body was aching and I still felt fever, I took pain medication, but the next day I still felt fever and rheumatic pain, sometimes also headache to want to fall. What do you think it is, Doc? Please answer, thank you🙏
Thank you for the question.
A body that feels itchy and has red spots, accompanied by fever, chills, aching rheumatic pain, and headaches may indicate you have an infection. Some types of infections that can cause clinical symptoms like this include measles, scarlatina fever, chickenpox, dengue fever, leptospirosis, and so on. Other skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, prickly heat, seborrheic dermatitis, even insect bites can be infected secondary to cause clinical symptoms similar to what you are experiencing at the moment. In addition to infections, your complaints can also occur related to inflammatory disorders, blood vessel disorders, hormonal disorders, and various other diseases.
It should be clarified, how many days exactly do you feel these complaints? Has it been more than 3 days?
If so, you better be alert and check your condition directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Some types of medication or follow-up tests (such as allergy tests, blood tests) can be done by a doctor in order to resolve your complaint.
In the meantime, you can do the following steps at home:
Take paracetamol as a fever reliever, chills, headache, and achy rheumatic pain
Get plenty of rest 6-9 hours a day
Don't over-exert physical activity
Drink plenty of water and eat foods with balanced nutritional value
Take a more diligent bath, and wear clean, loose clothing
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
In itchy spots, apply calamine lotion to reduce itching
Hope this helps.
