Unusual rashes can be bumps looking like tumors, areas that look like burns, blistering conditions, conditions over joints or around the eyes associated with internal problems, such as fever, joint pains, headaches, muscle aches and pneumonia. The actual diagnoses for patients may turn out to be lupus, pemphigoid, pemphigus, granuloma annulare, erythema nodosum, to name a few. If you end up having these types of conditions, your practitioner will discuss each with you.
Workups, which may include blood tests and skin biopsies, are usually necessary to obtain a diagnosis for these unusual rashes.
