Avatar f tn Group A Streptococcus is responsible for diseases such as glomerulonephritis, rheumatic fever (causes joint pains), bacterial endocarditis, and scarlet fever. The ASO level is usually less than 160 Todd units per milliliter. In your case the titer is high.

At this point, given your child's age and the presentation of the rash, scarlet fever and hand,foot and mouth disease are differentials. As for scarlet fever, the rash usually develops a day or two after the onset of fever. Prior to his your child complains of pain in swallowing,weakness or easy fatigability, decrease in appetite and for some nausea and vomiting.

Avatar n tn I am asking whether I could get this from my partner they show no signs at all but in the last week their hands have started to peel in exactly the same way mine are following the scarlet fever rash. I am worried that this may not be scarlet fever but something more, is there any std that comes across this way. My Doctor has said that is highly unlikely I was infected from my partner following their treatment or that I was reinfected from them following my antibiotics course.
