Did you see a blotchy, itchy rash spreading from your arms to your legs toward the end of that never-ending nasty cold or flu bug you recently had? You're not alone.
"We see it every year, especially with kids," said Matthew Anderson, MD, a family medicine physician in the HonorHealth Medical Group. The rash arrives toward the end of infection and lasts a couple days. "It's the body's reaction to the virus and doesn't respond to much medication, including steroids. "We try to just give the body time to heal itself," he said.
