Alternate Names : Cutaneous Eruption
What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?
There are many questions a healthcare provider may have when someone complains of a rash. For instance, he or she may ask:
how long the rash has been present
how the rash started and changed over time
whether or not the rash itches
whether or not the person has a fever or chills
whether anyone the person knows has had a similar rash
whether the person has any allergies
what medications the person is taking
whether the person has had similar or other rashes in the past
whether the person has had a recent insect or tick bite
The healthcare provider may ask about other symptoms, which can help narrow the list of possible causes. For instance, a person may be asked about his or her sexual history or whether he or she has had arthritis or weight loss.
