Your Rash Timeline

  • There are many causes for rashes so timelines can vary.   A rash may be due to:

    • an infection of some kind,
    • an allergy to something you ate, or
    • your skin coming into contact with something that has irritated it.

    However, if you have a severe headache, vomiting, a high temperature, a stiff neck or sensitivity to light along with the rash, get medical help immediately as these are signs of meningitis.
