Adult post viral rash?

(1 Post)

I had a virus last week, excrutiating throat, swollen neck glands headache that floored me for 5 days. I am nearly over it, only lingering sore throat and slightly dull head but last night (over a week since the virus started and 3 days since feeling quite a lot better) I burst out in an itchy rash.

Is that normal for the rash to come several days after the worst of the virus has passed, and also, for an adult to experience this?

Many thanks all for any advice.
