Viral Skin Infection

Viral Skin Infection

A viral exanthem is a skin rash or eruption that shows up as your body is fighting off a virus. Another reason can be because of a drug you took. A virus is a kind of germ that spreads easily from one person to another. Some rashes are very specific to the kind of virus that is causing them. Others just look like blotchy red spots on the body. Often, you never find out exactly which virus causes the rash. Some rashes may be a sign of a serious illness. They may also be more serious if you are pregnant.
