Avatar m tn March 1st at 4 am, technically March 2nd, I woke up with a fever of 103. The fever persisted as low grade even with medications. (Advil and Tylenol fever reducer) I also have what feels like the worst sore throat ever. Literal burning whenever I swallow. (Only hot liquids help) I went to urgent care that Tuesday morning and they tested me for Covid, Flu and Strep. The wacky doctor that came in claimed "your throat looks fine and all your other vitals are normal.
Avatar f tn Monday I got a severe burning sore throat with no other symptoms. Tuesday sore throat was worse I could barely swallow. Went to MD and had a strep throat test- negative. Also swollen lymph nodes in neck and slight fever 101. No other cold or flu symptoms. I can only swallow ice water or ice chips. After 3 days I now have a blistery rash on my hands also. Could this be mono or something else- should I see Dr again?
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 f tn My 15 month old has a sore throat that is so bad he refuses to eat or drink. We took him to the doctor and he checked his ears and throat so fast that the total time spent with us was 5 minutes tops. As he was walking out the door he says he is calling in a script for an antibiotic for ear infection. In my confusion and crying child in arm I should have said stop and take time to thoroughly check my child but did not.
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 m tn (only strep infection). Or even Scarlet fever with no rash? Also, when I had Strep I had the tendency to self-induce vomit by using my ring and middle fingers, could that generalized the strep infection towards my fingers which still lasts until now?
Avatar f tn 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 f tn she complains of sore throat and head ache. she has periods of lethargy and times of normal activity. She was exposed to strep throat this week. Diagnosis was UTI and ear infection, she was started on keflex. she has had 1 dose this afternoon. She now has a red rash that has a "sunburn like appearance" 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.
Avatar n tn my 2yr old son has had a fever for 4days between 102 to 104 Itook him to the ER and they told me that he has strep throat and scarlet fever. I had scarlet fever when i was a child and the symptoms he ishaving and the symptoms I had are very different all execpthis fever. i'm very worried that the hospital diagnosied hi wrong. His symptoms are runny nose cough very high fever his skin is a redish color but no rash or blister.
Avatar f tn Call the doctor about the peeling fingers as well as the sore throat coming back. Unless this was one of those slow Z-Paks, you should be feeling better. The finger peeling means you had scarlet fever as well, apparently.
Avatar f tn t itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms. I went to the hospital the next day, as the rash had spread to my hips, underarms, and inner arms (again, red, macupapular). Doctor did a CBC and told me that I was negative for mono, said I didn't have strep (although I'm not sure where this came from, she did not perform a swab test), and that it was probably a virus and the rash should disappear in the next day or two.
Avatar f tn Hi Odette72, If you were never treated for Scarlet fever you can get long term complications from it like Rheumatic fever or kidney problems. Also, fever, pneumonia, throat abscesses, ear infections and skin infections. Most people don't get the complications but it can happen and that is why they treat this with antibiotics early on. Maybe you can see an infectious disease doctor. Do you have any problems with your kidneys or heart? If not that hopefully you will be okay.
Avatar m tn The term Scarlatina may be used interchangeably with Scarlet Fever, though it is commonly used to indicate the less acute form of Scarlet Fever that is often seen since the beginning of the twentieth century.
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.
Avatar f tn We took him to the doctor and he diagnosed Scarlet fever. He priscribed Amoxicillin for 10 days. He started taking it and 3rd day his fever was gone, rash was gone. I sent him to day care for one day as I had to go to office and he came back with minor fever again. We thought his antibiotics is still not finished may be he will be fine. Next morning his legs badly hurt. Then I notice he was starting pink eye.
Avatar m tn b/c she said to do that if he had any odd sensations in his body. Again, NO signs of strep. (no fever, sore throat, rash, etc.) So I guess I am wondering if anyone has had this happen. The not being able to walk really scares me.
1798872 tn?1346164585 No, but check both scarlet fever and rheumatic fever on wiki. The immune response initiated by scarlet fever can lead to rheumatic fever. Said immune response destroyed my mother's heart valves because cartilage and the bacteria's cell wall are somewhat similar.
Avatar f tn I had a cold but it's been two and a half weeks. I still have congestion in my nose but nothing more than a bother. What concerns me is my throat!! It's not ichy, or scratchy like most cold related throats are. Cough drops, warm liquids, the throat spray, gargling things, nothing is helping because it's not like that. It hurts so bad to swallow, cough, yawn and sneeze.
Avatar n tn Well g/f, you have certainly been thru the mill and I'm very, very sorry to hear about the miscarriage. I do know, first hand, how devastating that can be. Since I'm in a bit of a rush to make it to work on time, this response is going to be a bit short. What you are describing regarding catching one cold after another with some flu tossed in for variety, I don't think is terribly unusual. I have seen much of that around here and in fact, have been dealing with it myself.
