If you have cold or flu symptoms with the rash, it could be swine flu. It would appear to be an infectious process since both of you have it. Contact your health care professional for advice. If it is swine flu and you are a candidate for anti-viral Tamiflu, it must be given within the first 48 hours of symptoms to have maximum efficacy. Fever with rash should always be reported to your doctor.
