What could cause an itchy red rash throughout the body?


Posted by jake

I recently returned from 3 weeks in Central America.  I developed a low-grade fever, dizziness, and nausea which resolved in 5 days, but now I have an itchy red rash throughout my body, worse on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet.  I don't have insurance. Do you know what it could be?  The rash is more noticeable after I shower.

I would contact a dermatologist...you could have contacted a parasite or have a food allergy....if you are using anything new on your skin even laundry detergent it could make you have a reaction. Good Luck!
You could have contracted scabies, it appears ususally on feet and hands
