Doctor: Thank you for contacting ask the doctor.I am sorry for your suffering. This could be result of the viral infection. M ost common Viral Infection would be Varicella virus causing Chicken pox. This infection usually starts with a fever of 38-40 degree Celsius followed by body ache, malaise and joint pain. The rash may appear 3-5 days later and be fluid filled crusting later in the course of the disease. This rash usually appears on the head & face , shoulders , trunk and may even involve the limbs in some cases. Please note that this is highly contagious. Patient isolation is a must.Management : Scrapping from the lesion , PCR, Chest Xray etc.Treatment : Antiviral medicationsIf you have previously suffered Chicken pox then it is highly unlikely to occur again.There are many other causes of the vesicular rash – Impetigo ( bacterial infection ) , other viral infections, Dermatitis etc.treatment would depend on the cause and may include antihistamines or antibiotics.I recommend a visit to a physician for a correct diagnosis immediately.Hope this information was usefulDr. Pooja Sabui
