Hello and hope you are doing well.

Anemia can cause symptoms of breathlessness. Anemia can occur due to decreased production or increased destruction of red blood cells. Check to see if the rash is due to bruising? If so it could be a bleeding disorder. Anemia could sometimes indicate blood disorders like hemolytic anemias namely,  thalassemias, hemoglobinopathies and immune hemolytic anemias. You will need further investigations like a peripheral smear study and if needed a bone marrow study to arrive at a diagnosis. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
