HelloGo to the ER.This can be staph infection.And spreading this fast can be dangerous. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

I was initially shivering and feeling fatigue. I have never had chicken pox nor have I been immunized for it. Being that it was this fast that the bumps came out, it may be chicken pox? I did go to the ER on Friday and all they did for me was steroids. I also went to urgent clinic to get a second opinion and that's when they prescribed me doxycycline and vistaril for the itching.
