Avatar f tn You know scarlet fever was never considered a really bad illness ,times have changed I had it at around 3 year old it was no biggy then .

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 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.
Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
Avatar m tn Hi and very sorry your son has been so ill. I can give you some information and advice. Since he was ASO positive it means they were looking for invasive Streptococcus pyogenes (group A strep). Did he have a rash on his truck at any point? The doctor is saying possible scarlet fever. But, Strep Group A can cause a variety of invasive types of illnessness secondary to the original strep throat. these are rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, endocarditis, glomerulonephritis.
Avatar m tn 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." Besides the fact that my temperature was 99.3.
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 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 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 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 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. I have just given a run down of possible differentials that you may discuss with your physician.
Avatar n tn Sorry, hit enter too fast. Anyway I don't think it can be either scarlet fever or Fifth disease because of the rash and fever. I can see Fifth disease to still be possible, because it may act differently in adults than kids. But I don't think it could be scarlet fever at all. I mean it usually comes it a facial rash yes, but also a high fever, strawberry tongue, and then a full on rash. Also you feel pretty freaking miserable if you got it.
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 f tn s stretching it- But my son had peeling itching toes and fingers after scarlet fever which is a dreaded disease but actually is only a step above strep..... Has he had Strep throat? followed by another week or so with a rash/sunburned looking?
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 n tn Hi, How old is your child? There are differentials for a rash in children who present with fever. 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 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 n tn I was diagnosed with Scarlet Fever two weeks ago and prescribed penicillin for 10 days to clear it. I had a high fever, major sore throat with white puss on, a rash on my body and arms and now peeling hands, arms and feet. I am wondering how I contracted this. I have met a new partner three weeks ago and all we have done is kiss (alot) and mutually masturbate. My Partner though was diagnosed with Tonsillitis in March and was hospitalised for it. They made a full recovery with penicillin.
Avatar f tn I've had a fever for a little over a month now. Usually 99-101.7. I'm tired and I feel soreness in my neck. Blood work is mostly normal but sed rate is high, 67 and my hgb dropped from 13 to 10 over three weeks. Wbc normal. Cxr normal. Been on ceftin for three weeks and started doxycycline yesterday. Any ideas???
