My friend, mid-30s is working in Kuwait. She has been sent

This answer was rated:

My friend, mid-30s is working in Kuwait. She has been sent home from work with a rash all over her body which is itchy and also stings. She has a headache and is hot, but it is in the 40s in Kuwait just now. Her face feels lumpy where the rash is and sort of plastic-y. She is tired and going to get some sleep.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Can you please attach an image of the rash


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm just sorting an image. How do I attach an attachment, or forward an email to you?

There will be an option to send attachment on your screen so you can attach image there


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry, I'm having to send the image from Whatsapp on my phone to this PC but the emails aren't working today on the PC. The rash is a deep red colour, of a raised leathery nature, with uneven edges, it covers the cheeks, chin and nose, but leaves a border round the eyes and mouth.

Its okay

The description you have mentioned most likely suggest a viral illness

I would like that she get examined physically by the doctor

In the meanwhile she should use Paracetamol and an anti-histamine like Loratadine to help with her symptoms

She should keep herself hydrated as well

A complete blood count,urea and electrolytes and urinalysis should also be done

I have rated Dr Ehtisham but I think it may be Erysipelas, a bacterial infection. He didn't see an image so it wasn't a very easy conversation. Thank you

It can be that is why it is important to have a look at the rash

You can try sending image again if possible so that I can have a look at it
