I have had a rash that looks like a faint german measles rash, I had a german measles injection and the rash came a month later, but I have had the rash for a few weeks now, is that normal? I dont feel ill at all.
Thanking you

I don't think it is due to the vaccination you had. This type of rash is usually due to a viral infection but can also caused by some medications, and bacterial infections like scarlet fever or streptococcal infections.
