Help with symptoms

My friends 18-year-old son who is having some serious issues. He spent the last week in the hospital and they can’t figure out what it is. I thought I would post here in hopes that someone might have an idea. His symptoms are as follows; rapid weight loss, excruciating muscle pain throughout the entire body (this occurs in flares with no predictability), extreme night sweats, fever, rash/skin peeling on the fingers and toes. The hospital instructed them to take him to the rheumatologist. Any thoughts on what this might be?
