Spent 6 days being sick with what I believe was


Q: Spent 6 days being sick with what I believe was strep throat. Day 1: mild sore throat on right side. Day 2: moderate sore throat and thelargic behavior, later sever sore throat. Took musinex cold and flu day and night, ibprof in. Day 3: sever sore throat switched sides to left, mild fever, achy body. Took same drugs, plus DayQuil. changed soap to natural Castile bar soap. Day 4: moderate sore throat moved to middle of throat and moderate fever, general muscle aches and tiredness, also face is itchy and blotchy. Fingers stared to tingle and feel like "pins and needles." Took same drugs. Day 5: sore throat gone, body and muscle aches, super tired, face and chest break out moderately, resembles acne with breakable, itchy and dry skin with typical white puss under (like pimple). Same finger condition but more moderate now. Stoped drugs. Day 6: sever acne-like break outs all over face, excluding nose, and spread on chest, back, and up scalp. It's day 7 and I'm feeling much better but with runny nose and extremely breakouts, spread slightly overnight, extre dry skin. Finger sensation gone. Any help is appreciated.
