How long does scarlet fever last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does scarlet fever last


Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced long-term issue with elevated EBV numbers going up and down, but aways elevated numbers? Which, I think, is termed "chronic/active infection." If so, how long did it last? Or, is lasting...
Avatar f tn and if o do get sick forget it my temp is hard to judge when i jave a fever so o usually just go by how i feel. So i hope this helps a little even if it is very long winded.
Avatar m tn It may be that the only way to get back is to go back on Paxil for the rest of my life, but that's a last resort. I don't really know how to answer you without you having seen what happened and how fast it happened. I decided to wait it out, but it never went away, and I don't want to live a life all drugged up. I'm a writer, and I went off the Paxil because the new side effects were getting in my way; imagine what it would be like on four different drugs?
Avatar n tn Long story short she was not able to attend as much as we would have liked since she got the flu, scarlet fever, the 5th disease - you name it she came down with it! She has now begun kindergarden and in our community it is full days and it is a French school. My husband and I speak french it is my first language however my mom is English so my we have always spoken to my daughter in English to avoid development issues in solidly grasping a 1st language so we thought.
Avatar n tn does scarlet fever cause any scarring or loss of pigmentation? Does anybody know if tanning would help or make worse?
Avatar n tn Hi, Your rash does not appear to follow a specific pattern of distribution. For how long have you had this rash? Was this associated with any flulike symptoms like a clear nasal discharge, joint pains, headaches, sore throat, eye redness? Do you have any known allergies ?
Avatar n tn To answer the specific question, "How do I know when skipped heart beats are dangerous?" You don't. Only a doctor can determine that with equipment like an EKG. The big clue that something is wrong is if you begin passing out, which from what you say is highly unlikely since your heart tests are normal. If you're just having ectopic beats, this probably isn't even worth you thinking about it.
Avatar f tn Getting worse not better. Went to the docs she said scarlet fever but I don't have any other symptoms other than the rash. She put me on anti biotics but nothing is getting better after 2 days of taking them, and I've had the rash for 6 days now. My groin lymph nodes are swollen. I have a blocked ear and doc also said my throat is inflamed. Rash is just lots of little bumps. Some in clusters. Sometimes pink. All over my body arms neck chest stomach legs face.
Avatar f tn Have you had the symptoms before? If so how many times and how long did they last If the symptoms have persisted for more than 5-7 days that I would consider going back to the health care provider and emphasize the points above.
Avatar f tn I've just started getting the PVCs but have had mild mitral valve prolapse since I had scarlet fever over 40 years ago. Have your PVCs gotten any worse or frequent over the 25 years? Do you take meds for it? I'm going to try not taking the beta blocker I've been offered unless I really have to. Don't like the side effects. Am hoping that my PVCs won't get worse if I don't go on the beta blocker.
Avatar n tn I am now just extremely upset because my doctor brushes me off after I've insisted on a throat culture and some lab work. Since she didn't do that, I came down with scarlet fever. (Which was treated) Any advice or input who knows what's going on?
Avatar n tn I would have needed 4 weeks to cure me.) You don't say how often you get them or how long they last, but given my experience, it is certainly worth getting tested for Lyme. Don't bother with the doctor who already refused. You will need to find another one and ask to get tested at IGeneX. They are a specialty lab that finds many more cases than other labs. There are between 30-50% false negatives at the big labs due to quality of testing (or lack thereof).
Avatar m tn It can be a sore throat or it can cause necrotizing fasciitis and eat your leg off. Then there is this rheumatic fever and scarlet fever. My best friend woke up with a rash and high fever and opened all the windows (it was winter). Luckily her other friend lived near by and walked in and said what are doing it is freezing in here. He is a microbiologist too like me and he took her to the hospital. She had scarlet fever from Strep throat.
Avatar f tn She had a negative strep culture. That is the only test they have done. It does not itch or burn. There are no blisters but she can usually feel clear liquid seeping from her skin the night before she wakes up with a spot. Please, any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar n tn DD is 5 1/2 months old now. about a month ago she had scarlet fever. Her rash had almost cleared up completely but now she has a really bad rash on her chest and neck. It's almost like goose bumpy, really red and feels almost like sandpaper. With her neck she is getting like yellow stinky stuff in the folds. I was curious if this could be from teething. She doesn't have any yet but is drooling and chewing.
Avatar n tn * Dental infection, infections in the heart, middle ear infections, rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, skin infections, upper and lower respiratory tract infections Penicillin V works against only certain types of bacteria--it is ineffective against fungi, viruses, and parasites. Most important fact about this drug Return to top If you are allergic to either penicillin or cephalosporin antibiotics in any form, consult your doctor before taking penicillin V.
Avatar n tn Other causes can include bacterial endocarditis, post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, rheumatic fever, and scarlet fever. These conditions can be evaluated for respective with an echocardiogram and kidney tests, including analyzing the urine sediment. Sugar in the urine is most commonly due to diabetes. Repeat fasting blood sugars, or a glucose tolerance test can be considered to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn however, after i sent my post, i realized that your daughter has had this for 2 weeks and the general flu does not last that long. i dont know what else to tell you except i hope you find your answers. just keep pushing.
Avatar f tn Doc didn't think it was 5th disease, chicken pox or scarlet fever. They've drawn blood work and we're waiting on results. Scheduled to see the rheumetologist on Monday. I'm pretty freaked out. I would like to join in your request for info. thanks.
Avatar f tn the doctor treated him for Kawasaki Disease as we were waiting for the results of all the tests with the hemoglobin IV. He did have every symptom related the teh disease too. He tested posted for Scarlet Fever and then was given a Penicilan shot and shortly recovered after that. Most recently he developed a staph infection on his leg that lasted for over a month, we dont know how it started but he said he got a cut on his leg and it just got worse.
Avatar m tn no matter how high the risk of an HIV exposure, and no matter how typical the symptoms, the test result rules, as long as it was done long enough after the last possible exposure. Contrary to your doctor's advice, a negative 4th generation test at 6 weeks is absolutely 100% accurate. The 3 months standard applies when only an standard antibody test is done (and even then, usually 6-8 weeks is sufficient). See this thread, as well as the other link you will find there: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn My internist believes that mine was triggered by 3 major knee surgeries in 2007. I also had scarlet fever as a child, who knows. I started out by having really painful legs cramps, and lower back problems. The burning and twitching muscles and the insomnia are the worst. Although I do sleep fairly good now at night, but when I have a flare, sleep time is over. Have you seen a Rheumatologist? If not I would and try to find one that treats fibro.
Avatar f tn I have had a fever between 99.9-102 for about 4 days. No meds after last riba on 1/18 until Thursday nigh after going to hospital. They gave me a narcotic called Tamadol? and an anti itch pill called hydrolizine...then again they gave me something for puking last night, and a cream and pumped my IV full of stuff. i don't know what it all was...I was too tired to ask. But all of that was for the pain and puking and rash, so it isn't the culprit...
543981 tn?1322217248 Hi, my daughter who is 10 came down with influenza B last week. She started out with a cough and fever and the fever lasted for three full days which I thought was odd because her fever usually just last for 24 hours. Anyway, the morning after her fever broke she woke up with achy calves but she could still walk. By evening she was in a lot of pain and I gave her ibuprofen and I did push the fluids. At 4 a.m.
Avatar f tn I told him that I had been very sick with Scarlet Fever when I was 5 years old. I remember being so sick and was kept in a dark room, with no visitors. And if I'm not mistaken, it was about the same time that I started having horrible leg cramps. It really made me feel good knowing that he is trying to find a way to help those of us who are suffering from FM/CFS. He has also been in close contact with my Rheumy and had told him he had started me on pain meds.
Avatar f tn chronic depression (off on for 18 yrs), reactive hypoglycemia. I think I had scarlet fever when I was 3 yrs old.
Avatar n tn So how long AFTER the event was your last test? As well, the urethra entry you speak of is speculated as far as I have read. Most cases of males receiving it by insertive means have had open sores or were "torn" during the encounter allowing entry to the bloodstream. The virus is very fragile and alot of things have to happen before it has the chance to infect.
Avatar f tn I never get them and don't give them to my kids i gave it to my oldest once and he got scarlet fever and his fever was 106.
Avatar m tn Hi Kim, Your a day early and a great fight song as always. Where have you been? Haven't seen you here since last week end. Hope all is well.
