Help please...

I have recently returned from a holiday in the meditereanien...as soon as i got home i noticed symptoms of a cold coming on....5 days later i awoke to find that i was extremely hot and a rash had appeared on my face and neck and chest....i thought nothin of it and left it for a week and half...when it hadnt got no better i went to see my GP, now he said it was somthing to do with a throat infection, that is releasing toxins into my bloodstream and causing a rash on my face....however he said it was odd that it hadn't spread ne where else....ne way, he put me on a course of penicilin...but after 3 days its not really helping, please help me....i read that what i have is like or is scarlet fever....is this serious....am i gonna die from this?...how long does it take before the penicilin kicks in?....and ive also noticed the main vein u can normally see on the inside of ur thumb...near where it joins the hand has become more prominent....im 20 years old and im an extreme worrier....please help

Re: Help please...

If it's been three days and it's not doing anything, I'd give your doc a call...that's what I've been told.
