I contracted a full body rash last year with mild symptoms. It returned this year with a vengeance, and the doctor called it a viral exanthema. It was awful this time with headache, fever, itching, fatigue and no appetite. It began the end of January and today I feel much better. It is possible to see where the spots were but they are fading. The bottoms of my feet are now peeling. I went to an infectious specialist and he tested for many things including the Coxsackie virus which tested positive. Guess we'll have to see where we go from here.
