Nasty Intestinal Bug + RASH!

I was fine yesterday, more than fine. Felt GREAT! It was my son's birthday so we took him to a hockey game. I ate a small pizza, some nachos and a Kit Kat. None of these things have ever bothered me. A few hours after arriving home, my gut was in knots and I was relegated to the bathroom for the duration of the night/early day. My head was in the sink and my butt on the toilet, where they remained for several hours as I was "throwing and going" every few minutes. It was HELL. When I was a young man, these things passed in less than 24 hours but I'm not young any more and they're taking their toll a great deal more.

I've had roto-viruses before, intestinal viruses....they have a very familiar pattern of fast acting illness that causes your body to purge quite completely from "the north and the south". But they passed quickly and didn't have any discernible side effects. Not this time! I have a rash right now that goes from my knees up to my neck, covers my arms, thighs and stomach and it's ITCHY!! I've been told repeatedly that any medication to treat intestinal viruses just makes them worse so I've been living on sips of ginger ale and chicken soup (both of which I've eaten my entire life without problem) so I know this isn't an allergic reaction to food or medicine. It appears I have an intestinal virus that has caused my skin to almost look like I have really bad chicken pox...anyone ever heard of anything like this? I'm thinking of bothering my doctor tomorrow (on a Sunday) because I need some kind of relief. This is AWFUL! Oh, I already know I'm allergic to prednisone so that won't help...gonna need to be creative here.

Any other suggestions from anyone?
