My son has swine flu but my two dd's have had an unexplained rash but no symptoms. Can anyone tell me what it looks like?

I don't understand, swine flu doesn't have a rash associated with it, is that what you meant? Not sure what your DD's had but doesn't sound like swine flu to me

No rash , sounds like they may have something else.

Hi, yes there is a rash in a few cases, my DD had the rash for 2 days before the symptoms developed.

It was like hives, doc said it was an allergic reaction to the virus.

The rash got REALLY bad the night before she got better and when she had a v high temp.

15 kids in her class with SF, only one other had the rash too but I have read on the net that others have had rash too.

I have it(although not confirmed) and I have a rash on my arms and legs.

My DS had a rash last week, was just a viral rash and not SF!

I had suspected sf last week, not diagnosed. Breastfed DS throughout and he developed a rash but no temperature or other symptoms. I put it down to a post viral rash due to exposure to the sf, guessed he would get some immunity to it through the breast milk.
