Avatar m tn 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. They need to determine if he got any of these complications (which are rare) .By doing more tests. Did they ever culture Group A strep from his throat? It takes a few months for the ASO titer to go down and also for the lymph nodes to go down.
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 n tn Scarlet fever is nothing more than a form of strep throat that causes a high fever and a rash. Is is not related to STD's in any form. Once you have had it, the chances of reoccuring is suppose to be slim however my son had it 3 times. They finally removed his tonsills and adenoids and he has not had it since. Also my son was fatigued and had achiness for a while following antibotics but this does go away.
Avatar f tn I was so freaked out because they suddenly became concerned about it turning into scarlet fever, etc. The antibiotic they had put him on was resistant to strep. Just wanted you to know the possibilites, but hopefully your little one will be well soon. Best wishes and God bless!
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 I have been exposed to strep throat and i'm 18 weeks pregnant What should I do and is there dander to my unborn child
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 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 my neighbor lady has just told me that she has a strep infection. However, the symptoms she has described are pretty scary. I'm wondering if some information is being held back. (She has been known to fib many times) There are 3 little children at home and I am concerned...she has a very, very bad sore throat, extreme headache and neck ache, dizziness, nausea, a rash covers almost her whole body. The worst symptom is 2 golf ball sized lumps at the point where her neck and spine meet.
Avatar f tn t have all the other symptoms except pain fever and pus and possible rash (in scarlet fever) with strep throat (not the cough, sneezing and other cold or flu like symptoms, but since your throat is so painful I thought of writing again to maybe have you check.
503418 tn?1231098736 Well, pus indicates an infection, and if serious there should be a fever. If the condition is strep throat (tonsillitis), that is a specific type of infection caused by the streptococcus bacteria. Strep tonsillitis can cause secondary damage to the heart valves (rheumatic fever) and kidneys (glomerulonephritis).
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 Hey there, I'm a 20 year old female concerned about catching something after having a man (of unknown status) ejaculate in my mouth twice. Five days after, I woke up with a swollen/sore throat and red, sunburn-like rash covering my groin, buttocks, breasts & surrounding area, but it didn't itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn Sounds like strep throat to me. My daughter got it alot when she was young. Your son will need an antibiotic and the sooner the better as it won't go away on its own and could turn itself into scarlet fever. Good luck.
Avatar f tn On September 12th I went to the doc with my throat swelled shut. They done a rapid strep test anf sure enough I had it. She gave me a shot of steroids, shot of antibiotics and antibiotics to take at home. My throat felt much better within a day or 2. A couple days ago the skin around ny fingers started peeling and then got worse. Is that normal with strep? I never developed a rash.
Avatar f tn I had a history of Strep Throat - caught Scarlet Fever, which moved into RF. Does your daughter have a tendency to get Strep? If so, it's important to catch it and treat it with antibiotics immediately. From the time I was diagnosed with RF, I had monthly Penecillin injections for many years. It kept me from getting strep again and turning into something worse. Keep doing the penecillin. Hope this helps . . .
