Avatar m tn looking for advise, my son is 9+yrs and has had a stiff neck since oct/nov last year. suddenly 2mo's ago he got really swollen glands with sore throat and bad chest infection with wheezing asthma, followed by high fever ard 5days later. it affected his liver too for e next 2months_swollen and palpable, with upset stomach and pain below the ribs. the doc suspected EBV, so he was told no sports for 2mo's. a test showed that it was an old ebv infection, but not active.

Avatar n tn it was the white patches I am concerned of since I was tan before I got the scarlet fever- it's five weeks now and they are still there? scars? or jsut need to blend in? that's why I'm wondering if I should start tanning to even out. When I get spray tan the spots still stay lighter thanks!!
Avatar f tn I had a strep infection without a sore throat, but with scarlet fever, and every joint in my body was involved. I could barely walk. I had no idea strep could cause these symptoms. You can also have a negative rapid strep test. What you really need is a culture and a blood draw to make sure. I got the run around for quite a while. I went to the doctor and said "my fingers are swollen" and he said "they don't look swollen to me.
Avatar f tn and is rough to touch, so i am thinking scarlett fever, however the rash is primarily under her panties in the front and her armpits. there is some on her back but it's not nearly as noticable as the other 2 locations. she reports mild itch but it really doesn't seem to bother her. Anyone have any input? Since it is the weekend I'd have to return to the ER to see a doctor.
Avatar f tn There was a vaccine back in the day for scarlet fever, but it has since been removed from the market. Simple anti-biotics can treat it though.
Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
Avatar n tn scarlet fever on my eldest followed strep throat but not at the same time- sort of red rash looks like he may just have a reaction to the soap detergent or something-no blisters but sort of looks like a sunburn with goosebumps- that's all I thought it was, a new detergent- and the fever did stay for several days- but they still treated with antibiotics/ do you have a regular pediatrician?
Avatar m tn I also had sores all over my body one time from what I read online I would say I had Scarlet fever but the doctor said its exactly like scarlet fever but its not?
Avatar f tn It is possible to have a severe case of strep like you are describing. I would stay as far away as possible from this person until it is resolved.
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 m tn t until later that the scarlet fever rash showed up. The strep infection was in my blood stream. Once I took the course of antibiotics it was gone. So I'm not sure that something like a throat swab is going to indicate that the infection is indeed eradicated. Maybe have to ask for some blood work to be done.
Avatar f tn ASO is an antibody which is generated in response to infection by Group A streptococci. Diseases which cause high ASO titer are rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, erysipelas, acute post streptococcal glomerulonephritis.In scarlet fever there is fever, abdominal pain, sore throat but there is a classical sandpapery feel rash which helps in its diagnosis. Rheumatic fever is characterized by appearance of a rash, skin nodules, joint pains, fever, heart problem, and involuntary movements .
Avatar n tn Hi and welcome to the forum. Please excuse me while I have a good giggle up my pant leg............... (Please know that I am NOT laughing at YOU or any of your problems!) I had to laugh because your doctor sounds like a nut job and in my humble opinion, you should fire her butt, if you haven't already and the sooner, the better! Every illness is PTSD? How interesting. Do you have any idea where she attended medical school? Iraq? Viet Nam circa 1964?
Avatar n tn 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 the disease usually comes along a couple of weeks after someone has popped up with a stubborn strep infection like strep throat or scarlet fever (which is almost unheard of these days w. the scarlet fever). The parts of your body that can be effect is your heart, brain, joints of your body mimicking rheumatoid arthritis and believe it or not your skin. It is considered to be an inflamatory disease in other words causing any of these parts of your body or a portion of them to swell up.
1512612 tn?1290269491 Other possibilities needed to be ruled out are viral exanthem, Mycoplasma pneumoniae - serological test and chest radiography is important to rule out and should be treated with appropriate antibiotic, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (it is tick borne disease and needs serological test for diagnosis), infectious mononucleosis, scarlet fever; as a result of streptococcal tonsillopharyngitis, Kawasaki disease, and dengue. Hence, you need to undergo serological tests for few common causes.
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.
Avatar f tn Also, besides pus, do you have a high fever? Any swollen lymph nodes? You can get a strep test at CVS pharmacy as they have a physician assistant there if you don't want to go to the doctor. It is better to go to the doctor for a strep test though because sometimes you can get false negatives from the strep test. But it is fairly accurate. If it is negative the doctor can send it for culture. I don't know if CVS will do that. It is a thought.
