About Stills Disease

Still's Disease is a type of arthritis which is associated with some kind of salmon-colored Pink rash and sometimes the affected persons do get high fevers. This is like a rare inflammatory condition in which the affected person may experience daily spiking fevers, have swollen joints associated with pain.

This mostly occurs in children but Still's diseases can also affect adults - in such cases it is termed as Adult-Onset Still's Disease.

I did find one site that gives extensive information on this Disease - International Still's Disease foundation:
