Scarlet fever side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Scarlet fever side effects


Avatar f tn Now it seems that my skin between my toes are peeling. Is this a common side effect of Scarlet Fever or should I be looking more towards another cause?? Excuse me for the misspelling of the antibiotic names.
Avatar f tn My primary doctor said it is nothing to worry about since it isn't too high... it is not a fever... but it is really annoying and uncomfortable and I can't possibly be the only one who has this problem??? Clearly something is differnt than before or not functioning as well... what could it be???
Avatar n tn Joint pain, inability to grasp items with hands and deformity such as you describe are not common side effects of tamoxifen. See an MD, these are signs of RA (rheumatoid arthritis). RA can happen to anyone, especially those w/history of scarlet or rheumatic fever or family history of RA.
Avatar n tn he's 48, diabetic (a1c test is 10) has gastroparsis, cardiomyoptathy, had scarlet fever untreated as a boy - doc said valves are ok, bitten by a lace water monitor with a gram neg. bacteria serveral years ago - treated but think there are residual effects myself and a smoker of 2 packs a day. Yes - he really needs to stop smoking. Today we learned that his heart is slightly enlarged on the left side.
Avatar f tn last December, lymph node on left side of neck removed - changes noted but not malignant mono at age 8 and recurring T and A at age 5 due to recurring scarlet fever episodes starting at 15 months of age. He also has just recently been found to have low IGA. This was discovered when we were at the hemotologist/oncologist. We are now going to a pediatric GI doctor tomorrow. I am trying to make sure I am asking the right questions. Please help. Tags: gilberts, please help, jaundice.
Avatar f tn I've just started getting the PVCs but have had mild mitral valve prolapse since I had scarlet fever over 40 years ago. Have your PVCs gotten any worse or frequent over the 25 years? Do you take meds for it? I'm going to try not taking the beta blocker I've been offered unless I really have to. Don't like the side effects. Am hoping that my PVCs won't get worse if I don't go on the beta blocker.
Avatar n tn Tablets and powder for oral solution may be stored at room temperature. What side effects may occur? Return to top Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking this medication.
Avatar m tn I have recently just had a cold in which I was taking some cold and flu tablets and thought it might have been that, but I have taken the same tablets before with no side effects. I also have recently started exercising again for about a couple of weeks but stopped once I felt the cold picking up and have just recently started again now that the cold has gone.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome From what you described, it does sound like fibromyalgia. The most important thing with fibro is sleep. Try to get a solid night of sleep every night. I take a benadryl and 3mg. of melatonin to help me sleep through the night. That one thing has really helped me. There are also exercises that help relive the muscle pain. A therapist could show you. Also, check out your local library for any books on fibro. Honestly, it is not wise for drs.
Avatar n tn The ASOT helps direct the antimicrobial treatment and is used to assist in the diagnosis of scarlet fever, rheumatic fever and post infectious glomeruonephritis. A positive test usually >100 unit/mL for preschoolers and >200 units/mL for others, but normal ranges vary from laboratory to laboratory.[1] The false negatives rate is 20-30%.[2] If a false negative is suspected then an anti-DNase B titre should be sought. False positives can result from liver disease and tuberculosis.
Avatar n tn My endo, the guy at the nuclear depart, and others that have had it done said it is nothing to worry about basically. The only 2 main side effects are hypothyroidism which is better than hyper anyway, and thyroiditis that lasts a few days, but nothing that Tylenol couldn't take care of. I think about that runner Gail Devers, she had RAI, I think more than 1 or 2 times and she is fact she had a baby just 2 yrs. ago and there is rumor that she may even be competing in 2007.
195647 tn?1198854134 If left untreated it can lead to scarlet fever, which is not desireable. Mono, on the other hand, is a virus which it's effects can last for months, but usually the sore throat part lasts only about a week. Mono is typically accompanied by sever fatigue and loss of appetite, and requires lots of rest. I would have a throat culture ASAP, and probably some blood work if you feel severly fatigued as well. Hope this helps, good luck.
Avatar n tn He has tried all medications with no real improvements and many with bad side effects that cause him to be too sedated. He is currently taking a low dose of Moban with fewer side effects, coping better with work and family. He says the voices he hears are never better and interfering all the time. Any help and treatments out there that will finally control and help minimize the voices without the severe sedative effects??
Avatar f tn has something stuck in his nose-an object that he put up there out of curiosity or a dare 3. Has been in poison ivy/oak or kudzu 4. has strep/scarlet fever, chicken pox, or measles 5. is having an allergic reaction to whatever antibiotic the doc gave you for the sinus infection? Anyway I would get a second doctor's opinion-I've been through a lot of sinus infections with everyone in my house and never run across the rash/blisters that you are experiencing.
535822 tn?1443980380 Of special interest were the impressive results that patients received from homeopathic medicines in the treatment of the many feared infectious diseases, including cholera, typhoid, yellow fever, scarlet fever, pneumonia, and influenza. In addition to the above research conducted for the Swiss government, other researchers in North America have found efficacy and cost-effectiveness of various "integrative health practices" (Guarneri, Horrigan, Pechura 2010).
Avatar f tn Is it possible to have damage to my brain or still have sweeling. I've also had scarlet fever sever tmd back and kneck injury asgood slaughters surgury to repair a hole in my bone in my elbow 7 ear surgerys for tubes had my atnoids taken out when I gave birth to my first child I had placenta acreeta and almost died from blood loss had 2 blood tranfusions.
Avatar n tn I was so reluctant but I want him to pass Kindergarden. He does have the side effects, i.e. stomach aches (which seemed to pass now) restlessness, very picky eater, very emotional and sad feelings that no one likes him. He has had several infections over the past 4 months, i.e. sinus infections, scarlet fever, ear infections, strep throat and constantly sniffles. He does have the rapid heart beat which I get concerned about.
Avatar m tn or treat diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, tuberculosis, syphilis, scarlet fever, shingles, herpes, pneumonia, and prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). And HCV. . . Colloidal silver can cause serious side effects. One is argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the body. Argyria is not treatable or reversible. , .
634590 tn?1293777693 TX is bad for a lot of things - the things it causes are sometimes worse than the cure. However - YOU MUST do your research and decide if the risk is worth it. ANY MEDICATION you take is bound to have a side effect --- on someone - somewhere - somehow that is bad. You must read up on the trials - the tests --- and learn medical speak. Take your time - because honestly - TX is bad for every part of your body --- just for some folks it is worse...
Avatar n tn I've pulled up info on this med and was not happy with all the side effects listed, especially with her history.Just curious how many dont convert w cardioversion and if it is normally tried again? Anyone been on this before??

Avatar f tn Claims made about the effectiveness of colloidal silver for numerous diseases are unsupported scientifically. Colloidal silver can have serious side effects. Side Effects and Risks Silver builds up in the tissues of the body. This buildup of silver can lead to a side effect called argyria, a grayish or bluish discoloration of the skin, conjunctiva (the clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye), nails, and gums.
1305767 tn?1361196276 A grandparent of mine had to have teeth removed I believe at a fairly young age owing to having had scarlet fever. Poor posture can affect the TMJ situation. If the x-rays the dentist did included a TMJ panorex, did that reveal any arthritis in the TM joints? Did he palpate the joint itself to see if it was tender? If it turns out you have a disc (or both discs) displaced in the joints themselves, I strongly suspect dentures would not eliminate the pain...

Avatar n tn I personally tell all my doctors (breast cancer surgeon, Oncologist, GP and gastro) of all my childhood illnesses, as I was in an isolation hospital at 9 yrs old, with scarlet fever and still don't know if this was a precursor to the effects on my immune system. My twin brother and elder sister did not get sf. Perhaps you could post on the Doctor's part of the forum that Dr. Kevin Pho responds too, as he may have the answer you are looking for. Take care, Liz.
543981 tn?1322217248 yes my son has had Chicken Pox and Scarlet Fever (both at the same time) but these illnesses were not in the same time frame as the myositis attacks, nor were they even within a few weeks/months of one another. I am very concerned that this is going to happen every time he picks up a virus...and if it does, is it doing any possibly lasting damage to the muscles or nerves in his calves?
996946 tn?1503252712 Some theorize that it is hereditary while others believe that if you've been inflicted with a rhuemtoid disease in your past such as rhuematic/scarlet fever you are more susptible to contracting Fibromyalgia. I'll continue to pray for all that have been inflicted with this as they don't seem to know a cure for us.
Avatar n tn Group A is the one that can have lasting consequences such as rheumatic fever and kidney side effects, but other streps can also cause sore throats, particularly group C. Labs differ in the ways that they culture strep screens. Some methods are better than others. Just because you had a negative culture doesn't necessarily mean that you didn't have it - there's always sampling error (did you gag real good when they took the specimen?).
665881 tn?1248930597 Quick comment on your post. "Every neurologist I've talked with raises their eyebrows in interest when they learn I had scarlet fever as a child." Why? I had both scarlet fever and rheumatic fever as a child. Does scarlet fever leave some neurological impact? This a new one to me.
Avatar n tn I get an excruciating pain on my left side below my arm pit, about 2 fingers below my breast. The pain travels up my side, my shoulder, down my arm to my hand, I can move my arm, but can't use it. I almost went straight to the hospital today, but decided to wait it out, the last one only lasted about 10-15 minutes, and so did this one. It does,however leave a strange feeling in my chest and throat, kind of a quivery feeling. I am trying to decide if I should call the Dr.
