Has anyone had a rash? If so what was it like and did you have other symptoms?

I had a rash on my neck and up one cheek. It was a typical viral type rash, hot and with the 'lace' effect.
I know others have had a rash that looked a bit like chicken pox though.

I currently have a rash on my back/shoulders / upper arms. Had it a few days and it's a bit like chickenpox, no other symptoms other than fatigue.

My DS (15) had a pin prick rash over his chest, which resembled a post-viral rash. He didn't even tell me about it until he'd had it a couple of weeks shock. But it didn't itch or hurt and has just faded away. No other obvious symptoms of anything (he does have a sore toe but it looks nothing like any of the 'covid toe' photos I've seen I think it might be an ingrown toenail

I have a pinprick rash across my chest and up to my neck - it's come up in the last 24 hours or so, together with a return of the mild sunburn-like sensation that I had back in April.

I'm a longhauler... Had the virus back in March and continuing symptoms (too many to mention here, but seem to be over the worst and on the mend now, fingers crossed).

Do any other longhaulers have a rash? Apparently, according to medics, we're not infectious (see 8 weeks plus plus thread) so I'm trying not to worry about this latest new symptom.

P.S. My rash doesn't itch or hurt either. Are postviral rashes common in adults? I'm struggling to find out anything about them. Most online references are about rashes during viral infections. I really hope I am post viral. That seems to be what the medics in the know are now saying about us longhaulers....

Yes, we all had one here, as far as I can remember. I also got blisters on my fingers.
