Avatar n tn Hello Im concerned about my almost 4year old son who has recently finished a 5day course of antibiotics- penicillin, for scarlet fever, its the first time he's had them. within a day or so of finishing the course he is having pains in his tummy which seem to come on mainly from walking any further than around the house, and also sometimes eating.iv just bought some probiotics and am hoping thats all thats needed? Id be really grateful to hear from anyone with similer experience or advice??
Avatar f tn When I was a child in 1992 I had scarlet fever. They gave me a shot of penicillin and within a week i was all better. If you do decide to go back to the doctor, see if they offer a one time shot instead of 10 days of pills. Also gargling salt water is very helpful for sore tonsils....don't swallow of course. Sorry i cant be of more help. I hope all goes well.

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.

606078 tn?1247264553 Scarlet Fever is caused by Strepococcus bacterial infection (group A Strep) that can in some patients remain latent for some time and then reappear. In most patients the exposure and development of immunity occurs in childhood, but it can cause the condition in adults that were never exposed as children or in adults that carry a latent infection that can reappear due to immune suppression, trauma, surgery, or other situations.
Avatar n tn I am very worried for him, and I know that the doctors are doing all the right tests for him, MRI-more blood work. Also does anyone know if scarlet fever has any type of relationship with these tests? My son had scarlet fever 3 times. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn If your daughter is a child then the possibility of rocky mountain spotted fever, Kawasaki disease and scarlet fever are there. Rash in all these involves the palms and soles and is a red, shiny rash. Investigations and blood tests are needed to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist.
