Did you have any history of tick bite?
When did all the symptoms start?
Where did the rash start first? Is it spreading? Does it itch?
How is your temperature?
Which blood tests did you have in ER?
Which antibiotic was prescribed?
Please write the test results you have in hand.
Please wait.I am opening the results & then write your answer.It can take a couple of minutes.
I thought these are results of blood tests.
Do you have those?
The results are taking time to open.
Thank you for all the information,From the picture, it is difficult to diagnose whether it is HSP or RMSF.Lab results are not diagnostic so far.However, from your history RMSF should be taken into consideration.Treatment should be started early in RMSF without waiting for lab results.This will help to prevent complication.I feel you should start taking antibiotic as the doctor advised.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
