Flu-like symptoms may occur initially and you may develop: fever, headache, muscle aches and backaches, sore throat, cough, swollen lymph nodes, chills, or exhaustion.
A rash will usually develop about 1-4 days after flu-like symptoms appear. However, you may only have mild sick symptoms or even no symptoms at all.
Rash may be on or near the genitals or anus, but can be on other areas like the hands, feet, chest, or face. A rash can also occur inside the body (mouth, vagina or anus).
Rash may look like pimples or blisters and change as disease progresses.
