Still Going On

Friday night, my fever began to creep up again. Saturday morning, I woke up and the rash was still there. It feels like I have a sunburn. I have not been in the sun though. I still have the fever on Saturday, so I went to a walk in clinic with the hope that they could tell me what's wrong. But they couldn't. The doctor there did not know what was wrong and she strongly suggested I get to the ER. I need bloodwork. So that's where I went. A flu test was negative. A strep test was negative. My white blood cell count was low. Aha! Seems I have a bacterial infection, the ER doc thinks my blood is infected. I had 2 bags of IV antibotics last night. Why the reash, he doesn't know. Seems like this bacteria is presenting itself in a strange way.
But today, I still do not feel any better. I still have the fever, and I am still red. And it still feels like I have a sunburn. I'm really freaked out.

Hi! Okay, i know a home remedy for the infection, but the rash is a little suspicious. I do know of a great homeopathic remedy for the 'sunburn' feeling rash. You should be able to pick it up in a natural food store, like a small local shop that has natural stuff--not GNC.
Anyway, the remedy is called Cantharis. It is specific for rashes that feel like a sunburn.
If you want more information about it, visit and type cantharis into the search bar.
Hoping you feel better soon.
