Cough and rash...what could it be?

Hey guys, I'm hoping someone could tell me if they happen to know what my symptoms might mean, especially since I can't get to a doctor until pretty late in the day tomorrow.

I've had a pretty bad cold for about 2 weeks now. I had some muscle soreness for a few days, but now all I really have is a bad cough that feels like it's coming from my lungs. Last night it got a lot worse, and today I was really having trouble taking deep breaths, and even just catching my breath doing daily activities.

Then about 15 minutes ago, I went to put lotion on my legs which had been itching for about an hour and discovered a big rash on both my lower legs. It's splotchy, very light red, and made up of raised bumps. It came on completely suddenly...there was nothing there 2 hours ago. Now it's itchy. I've checked the inside of my jeans and there was nothing there that could have irritated them.

Sooo....if anyone's experienced anything like this, I'd really appreciate some input. I don't know if the cough and rash are related, but it kind of freaked me out. Thanks!
