Common Questions and Answers about Scarlet fever symptoms and pictures

scarlet-fever

She has had the rash on her back and chest for yrs. I was told Folliculitus then acne. I was thinking Strep{scarlet fever} as it tended to coincide with her Best friend getting Strep throat. Mary has never had ST! She does have daily headaches, not migraines and has a spinal fluid buildup, pseudotumor cererbri is the diagnosis. She also started developing breasts at 7 and has already had her pereiod since she turned 10 {DOB )06/93. Endo did bone age and put her at 13-14 yrs old.
Sorry to hear about all that you're going through. I've done a lot of research on strep, scarlet fever, rheumatic fever and subsequent heart valve damage. My 3 year old got strep four times before she even turned two - a child who otherwise never even got a cold. The fourth time, she progressed into the rash and was diagnosed with scarlet fever. I got very worried, as each time it gets worse. Our doctor said if she gets it again, the tonsils are coming out.
My partner has never shown any symptoms, and still doesn't... But now I have to have the talk with her, and let her know that this is all confirmed. The infectious disease doctor said "she's surely been exposed to this when you were asymptomatic, and needs to know that she's at risk". So.....
I googled up my problem and I read that after Strep infection some people develop Scarlet fever and eventually develop skin peeling (desquamation) on the fingers. But the problem is that I never got Scarlet fever because I never got a rash; I did get Strep for almost 2 weeks so I was wondering if that may be the cause. Help me please, can one develop desquamation without developing Scarlet fever? (only strep infection). Or even Scarlet fever with no rash?
Of the pictures online, the only rash that looks similar is erythema marginatum, but when I had a throat culture and rapid strep a couple months ago, they came out negative (but my throat is still inflamed and I have had no runny nose/cough/cold symptoms). The last known strep infection I had was scarlet fever 3 1/2 years ago (at 20 years old). I don't have a fever. I did have a similar rash on the underside of my upper arms earlier this year that only lasted a few days.
Basically, for 6 weeks her face keeps getting new spots. We have seen 2 peditricians and 2 dermatologists. They do not know what it is. She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using Altabax ointment. Still, no improvement. When one spot is almost gone, she will wake up with a new spot. It has been a never ending cycle. She had a negative strep culture.
The other night I came down with a severe headache and the following day had strep-like symptoms (only lasting a day) of sore throat, headache, neasuea, weakness/ fatigue, diarhea, fever, and vomitting. The next day my fever ws gone and the only thing that lingers is a sore throat. My mother being an RN seems to think it is scarlet fever caused by a dormant strep infection I had about a month ago. I am not so sure as I did not have any strawberry tongue are patches in my mouth.
So far I have ruled out most of the usual suspects (chicken pox/measles/bed bugs/scabies/prickly heat), because i have none of the symptoms and no rash, just loads of evenly spaced little red spots. Even with bed bugs or scabies, the bites are close together and the skin is almost inflamed, I just have spots. The only thing that seems a possibility to me is some sort of bodily reaction to stress, as I have been stressed a little bit lately, but no more than usual.
If the antibiotic made my horrible cough go away it coudlnt be ARS. but i still was having a non-bothersome phleghm production and cough once or twice a day. And then my hunger was gone for so long after Zythromax that Im worried if it had anything to do with it. Was it too early for ARS? What about the weight loss: Stress, Anxiety, Lack of eating?? Worse, the dizzyness....
I started getting immune system issues that seem to mimic hiv, lupus, scarlet fever, blood poisoning, auto-immune disorder symptoms, red ring around lips, fordyce spots on lips/penis, DAILY CONSTANT breakouts on lips, herpes symptoms, hpv/syphillis symptoms, candida symptoms, white marks all over body, putting pressure on skin shows white spots, oral thrush, hairy tongue, sometimes I get VERY dark blue/black veins in various parts of body (penis, hand, leg, etc), still have the red cheeks, extr
I requested my medical records 2 wks later after stewing on it. I have posted them all in my Journal and uploaded the pictures of the EKGs in my pictures. I was sorta surprised the other day when on here someone said a sino-atrial 2nd degree mobitz ll block was/could be life threatening. I only found out it was on the EKG by requesting my reports. If you could look at them and or my test results, I would greatly apprieciate your opinion. Also if you think I should go to another Dr.
No pictures of spine but I recently had a blood test done to check my sed rate for indications of inflammation because I have other issues such as weight loss and flu like symptoms that come and go. The test came back normal and in April I had other blood tests checking CBC, antibodies, metabolism etc. Basically a full work up and everything is normal. This week has been really bad for clenching my jaw for some reason.
MY Remotholigist said I tiped him off I told him about this and he said yes he agreed this was it and I was the only other case he has seen in his 12 years of pracice.I brought in pictures of my rash after a shower and fever and told him about the sore throat and stiff neck and i did havea higher set rate. Steroids are the only nasty med that helps but boy they make you moody and chubby but it so helps with pain and heart rate slows down and fevers .
I was 5 years old when I had Scarlet Fever along with my younger and older sisters. I remember being so sick and having horrible nightmares. I've always had trouble with my legs and playing 6 years of tennis in school sure didn't help any. In 2007 I had 3 major surgeries on my right knee. These 3 surgeries were within 7 months to the day. I had so much emotional trauma during this period that I felt that I was on the verge of really losing it.
Quick comment on your post. "Every neurologist I've talked with raises their eyebrows in interest when they learn I had scarlet fever as a child." Why? I had both scarlet fever and rheumatic fever as a child. Does scarlet fever leave some neurological impact? This a new one to me.
At its worst I can't eat or drink the nausea is so bad, indigestion, I get chills for hours at a time but with no fever that I can tell, and bad headaches. None of these symptoms are relieved by bowel movements and I don't get cramping. They have diagnosed stomach virus and mesenteric lymphadenitis almost 3 months ago; both of which should “go away within a week on their own”… 2 and a half months ago. I have been put on 2 other antibiotics.
htm Serious Skin Reactions Serious skin reactions, including Drug Rash with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) were reported in less than 1% of subjects who received INCIVEK combination treatment compared to none who received peginterferon alfa and ribavirin alone. These serious skin reactions required hospitalization, and all patients recovered.
Streptococcus hemolyticus is another name for Streptococcus pyogenes which causes a bad infection. It is also known for causing strep throat and scarlet fever, endocarditis, and a lot of other problems. I am glad he is treating you for this. So YES your girlfriend needs treatment for this too just in case as it can cause bad infections. 3. Strep epidermis. is not important either and normal skin bacteria. so now you know you had a infection. I hope you feel better soon.
I tried to get in earlyer to the dr and they said they are packed and couldnt get me in till monday and i even told them what was going on and they said for me to not worrie it will be addressed at the appointment i was like uhg ok so....
They started allergy shots about 4 1/2 months ago and he is still currently taking those as well. His symptoms didnt change and about a month and a half ago, I took him back to the family Dr. and told him I was fed up and didnt think enough was being done to find out what he had. I knew it wasnt just simply allergies. The dr. ran some blood tests and some of his numbers came back with a frightening result. A couple of the tests (ANA and speckled )were elevated or abnormal.
It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
to be that time, and I have a lot of water retention, it gets bad then too as well as a cold and allergy symptoms. I really hate that we are all suffering from this weird problem...And I also pray that someone can find something to make them stop.
