Which disease gives you a rash and a fever? | Apollo Hospitals

Generalized rashes are among the most frequent conditions seen by primary care physicians and the most common reason for new patient visits to dermatologists. Accurate diagnosis is important, because treatment varies depending on the etiology and because some rashes are life-threatening if not treated promptly.

It is most convenient to categorize patients with fever and rash according to the type of rash and its distribution. They can be grouped according to eruption characteristics. Table I provides information on types of skin lesions.

The distribution or direction of the spread of an eruption and the number and type of lesions can help to narrow the diagnosis of fever and rash, but by itself, it rarely suggests a single diagnosis. The presence of other lesions, most notable target lesions, may suggest a single diagnosis. In the latter group, infections are frequently the cause of the underlying disease. Table II provides the most common infectious and non-infectious causes of rashes.
