Temp still high .... bad rash

It's 3 days since the infection hit and although my temp dropped below 38 it still popped above a couple of times during my obs.

Therefore, the doctors have changed one of the antibiotics.

I feel better though and the pain in my lower stomach has gone so I hope it is largely beaten!

However, I have noticed this morning a weird rash on my upper legs and my left arm. It looks like thousands of little pin pricks and I think its spreading..... the doctor suspects it is due to my low platelet count. It doesn't itch or is painful so I'm not particularly worried. I guess you get used to your body doing weird things during chemo....
