Common Questions and Answers about Scarlet fever outbreak due to infected food


Avatar f tn Scarlet fever can accompany strep throat, which is a bacterial infection passed by people. Poison ivy is a skin reaction to an oil in a plant. No connection.
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 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 n tn I completed the course of penicillin and had to return to the Doctors to test kidneys to make sure no complications following the fever but my throat still hurt. I have now been diagnosed with tonsillitis and am on another 10 day course of antibiotics. A throat swab has been taken this time to analyse what it is.
Avatar f tn This has been the third lot of antibiotics in the past three months for tonsil infections. Basically the doctor askd how attached he was to his tonsils because he was going to refer him to ENT at the hospital. Then yesterday afternoon my Son became more drowsy just stirring to say he had stomach ache. He was passing dreadful wind so put it down to that. He then vomitted. An hour or so later I noticed a fine rash all over his tummy.
Avatar m tn To begin with, I have always been easy to get sick from anything. When I was little, I had had scarlet fever, food poisonings, chicken pox, allergies to washing machine powders/antibiotics and cats and I have had all my life constipation (though now that I am smoking it has gone away) and my right tonsil is enlarged +Every time I go on vacation I have lowgrade fever. When I was 17 years old I got the swine flu.
Avatar m tn Stress lowers immune function and make you susceptible to infection that you would not normally deal with The bright red spots are a bit unusual. Any chance you have been exposed to scarlet fever ? The bright red spots make it more suspicious of a reaction to some kind of viral infection Any fever or other symptoms?
Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
606078 tn?1247264553 I was 5 years old when I was diagnosed with Scarlet Fever. I remember being so sick, nightmares, high fever etc. Could this be one of the culprits along with s many more that could have brought my Fibro/CFS to the surface.? I also had 3 major knee surgeries in 2007, I went through major trauma during all 3 surgeries. Thank you again.
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.

His symptoms are runny nose cough very high fever his skin is a redish color but no rash or blister.
Avatar n tn Hello, You have not mentioned your daughter’s age. 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.
Avatar m tn Without an outbreak, it's perfectly fine to share food, and with the same utensils. For the reasons discussed, the risk won't be zero, but it will be extremely low. You guys could probably live together, sharing food as much as you like, for your entire lives and she would never get it. Her chance of infection comes mostly from you kissing her, or by oral sex -- and I definitely would not tell you to avoid them! Has your girlfriend been tested for HSV-1?
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 n tn Hi, This may be a rash presented by an underlying bacterial or viral infection. Viral exanthems may be due to Ebstein Barr virus, enteroviruses, and measles. The rash of scarlet fever may be itchy and appear primarily in the chest and trunk.Drug allergies may present as rash.Another rash of unknown cause is pityriasis rosea which may involve the extremities and innner arms and thighs. I suggest you seek consult with your internist or dermatologist.
Avatar f tn 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. And some different kind of rash on his back of knees, thighs, upper legs, and back of the arms near the joints and back of wrists.
Avatar f tn I had scarlet fever as a child in the mid 70s, I was very sick for a long long time as I was miss diagnosed by 3 or more drs, I haven't had a great time in my life when it comes to fever's, I still have hallucination fever's in my mid 40s, does it effect your long term health?
Avatar f tn it could be due to the fever gave her a heat rash. the rash is in all the heat pertained ares. could be heat rash. her body fighting against the fever. ive had the heat rash before but they werent rough to the touch.
Avatar n tn 5 days later she had a fever and blocked nose and throat signs of outbreak. My mother took her to doctor, she was put on anti biotite and within 1 day was her normal self. Now 4 weeks later she has fever again, blocked nose and cough. But no sign of outbreak. No sign of irritation between her legs. My question is. Could she be having flu type symptoms with no physical visible outbreak, but the flu symptoms are being caused by the hsv2 virus. I am fretting.
