Hi folks:

Just getting over a bout of influenza. Not fun.

Friday, my fever broke. I woke up not drenched in sweat for the first time in 5-6 days. Only now the fever/sweat seems to have been replaced by a rash.

It is mild but there. It itches. If I scratch, the welts/spots/hives really get raised and stand out. It is mainly on upper arms/legs and a bit on my shoulders and around my hips.

Anyone ever heard of this? Googling, it seems rash after flu is rare but can happen (like with other viruses.)

I'm hoping it goes away ASAP and isn't some sort of histamine issue that I'm now dealing with.
