    Hiya,

    I recently got flu-like symptoms - started feeling really bad Wednesday night, sore throat, dizziness, a bit of headache, turned into full flu and runny nose on Thursday and higher-than-average temperature. Got down to 37.3 on Friday morning, without much of a headache just fatigue. Noticed a developing rash, though - went to see a nurse in my Health Centre on campus, but been told I just have a "viral infection" and told to take Panadol and Ibuprofen :rolleyes:

    I went to see another nurse in a different place today (the rash started spreading a bit), there's a hospital near where I study - but I've been told the same. :mad:

    Does anyone know what I can buy over-the-counter to make the rash go away? I really don't like it, and they won't prescribe me any antibiotic or something, and I don't want to wait ages for it to go away on its own :/
    Preferably something I could get in Boots or in a supermarket. Thanks

    You seem to have posted in the wrong forum. Health & Relationships is for trolls and people asking if being a virgin is ok at 30 years old.

    But just buy some germolene or savlon and put a bit of that on it. And don't itch it or you'll make it spread.

    That's what I started to think when I noticed there's a separate "Health" forum, but it was already after having this one done. :s

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are these ointments and are they easy to get? It's the first time in my life that I have a rash, so I have no idea what to do and as I said, nurses/doctors just tell me to take headache pills :mad:

    If it is just a rash with viral infection I'm not sure you can get rid of it in any other way but kicking the virus (and that means paracetamol, fluids and lots of rest!).

    I got a rash with nasty freshers flu and it went once I started to get a bit better, my dr sent me home to rest for a week and it had gone within days
