I broke out in a rash on my stomach, back and scalp. I landed in the allergist’s office. Her office waiting room was full of people with the virus. I had to use an inhaler and topical medications along with a short round of oral steroids. For me my head itching was the worst. I probably got the non-polio enterovirus infection at work. I was around a bunch of kids helping out at a music festival. Other than the itching it wasn't all that bad. I'm a bit old to be getting something like this.
