3. Skin Rash
Skin rash can be caused by a variety of ailments (including allergic reactions or an autoimmune disease). However exanthema (a widespread redness of the skin) is also common with the Zika virus according to the Pan American Health Organization.
Research shows that the rash related to Zika is not threatening, and will usually fade on its own. If a rash persists after other symptoms have disappeared, it’s probably best to consult a physician before trying to treat it with any topical creams or other medications.
