UPDATED-May 3, 2012. Scientist Dies at Veteran’s Research Facility in California from rare bacteria. He contracted a rash before dying! http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/deadlybacteriakills/
Original article begins-
An often unreported symptom of H1N1 Swine Flu and/or the Flu Shot is the appearance of hives and a rash. Children and adults often get rashes as an immune response to many viruses and the swine flu being a virus, is no exception.

In answering questions regarding rashes and the H1N1, we found…http://www.swineflu.org/forum_posts.asp?TID=25932
“Yes, I have seen a few patients with a rash. They’ve mostly been pediatric patients, not adults. Some were taking antibiotics for possible bacterial co-infections or had high fevers at the time of presentation, so it’s sometimes hard to sort out whether the rash was due to a medication, the blotchy skin that is sometimes seen with high fever, a bacterial infection, or whether it is a direct manifestation of H1N1. From a treatment standpoint, we try to rule out secondary bacterial infections or medication reactions as causative, bring down their fever, and provide supportive care for the flu. The rash has resolved itself without event in each case.
I did a quick literature search. There have been cases of rash reported associated with past influenza epidemics. In particular, this seems to have been a manifestation of the pandemic in the 1890s. Several doctors wrote about a “scarlatiniform” rash they were seeing — a rash that looked to them like what they’d see in scarlet fever but without the other typical signs of that disease (e.g. strawberry tongue, desquamation = skin peels/flakes). Those MD comments note that the rash, if one appeared, occurred within a few hours of the onset of illness, was seen mainly in children under 8 years old, was in proportion to the fever (more fever = more rash), and usually resolved in a day or so. (Bear in mind that these comments were written before viruses were identified and before the role of secondary bacterial infections was ascertained).
Here’s one such account: http://www.bmj.com/cgi/pdf_extract/1/1787/731
A “scarlatiniform” rash is seen in the above image, http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/hardin/MD/derm … fever.html
We also found this on the Swine Flu Rash-
“If it is any help, the night the rash got really bad and her temp was highest I rang nhs direct and the lovely doctor I (eventually) spoke to said that this was likely to be her bodies ‘final battle’ with the virus. he expected her to be better by the morning. http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/swine_flu/806681-Rash-with-swine-flu
The overwhelming majority of cases of scarlet fever are caused by group A streptococcus (GABHS). Other bacteria can cause a pharyngitis and similar rash, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, and Clostridium species. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1053253-overview.
Many people who have died from H1H1 this year were also infected with pneumonia bacteria, warns the CDC. These co-infections with a common bacteria (Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus) likely contributed to their death, according to a report published in the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Pneumonia is an inflammation of one or both lungs, usually caused by infection from a bacterium or virus. CDC is reminding people of the importance of being vaccinated against this common bacterium and advising them to talk with their doctor. http://seniorjournal.com/Spotlights/FLU2009/20091001-SeniorsNeedPneumonia.htm
There is evidence that like the H1n1 vaccine, the Pneumonia vaccine doesn’t work either. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/h1n1-swine-pneumonia-pneumococcal-vaccine-mf59/
In the U.S. PNEUMOVAX ® 23 (PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINE POLYVALENT) is the approved prophylaxis against pneumococcal disease. http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/p/pneumovax_23/pneumovax_pi.pdf where there is a complete disclosure of toxic ingredients including phenol.
Could it also mean the the H1N1 is again mutating and becoming stronger? Just coincidence? Another less reported side effect? Is the rash caused by a fever, over the counter flu medicines, Tamiflu, etc. Part of a coinfection of bacteria?
Don’t hold your breath on any scientific tying of the symptoms together. Guess if you or a child has an itch, scratch it. We’re curious to know if you see a rash if you would mind adding your findings in the comment section:
Age of person with rash?
Fever present? Temperature?
Consistent flu symptoms?
How soon after fly symptoms did rash occur?
Was there a seasonal flu vaccine?
Was thre an H1N1 or FluMist ® vaccine?
Did patients fever break and symptoms lesson/get worse after the appearance of any rash or hives?
What medicines were administered prior to the rash?
What medicines were administered after the rash?
How long did the rash last?
What worked best for you for overall treatment of the flu?
Anything else you can think of?
We just keep scratching our heads why all the neighborhood kids got the hee bee gee bees, and the flu too. Thanks for your confidential input.
Updated 11.04.09- We’ve found out catching Swine Flu twice, is not nice. One of the kids has Swine Flu for the second time. Here’s our new post on it via http://digg.com/d3196x1. Keep the comments coming and wishing everyone good health!
