Avatar n tn Does anybody know if scarlet fever scars or causes loss of pigmentation? recently getting over, but skin has not healed while some parts look white and some are still red?? And would sunbathing help to dry out or just make scarring worse?

Avatar n tn I am asking whether I could get this from my partner they show no signs at all but in the last week their hands have started to peel in exactly the same way mine are following the scarlet fever rash. I am worried that this may not be scarlet fever but something more, is there any std that comes across this way. My Doctor has said that is highly unlikely I was infected from my partner following their treatment or that I was reinfected from them following my antibiotics course.
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 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 n tn The rash of scarlet fever is usually associated with headache and a fever .The rash has a rough feel to it and may be reddish over the arms and legs.However ,in your case the rash does not appear like this based on the images. A superimposed viral infection is your physician's primary differential. Continue to obeserve the rash and note for any scaling of the skin or development of enlarged lymph nodes especially over the neck. Take lots of fluids and eat well.
Avatar f tn Hi any help is much appreciated. So 5 days ago I had a fever of about 102 to 103 then at one point the fever stopped right after it stopped I got a rash that started under my armpits and inner thighs and my pelvic where my stomach meets my groin and the back of my knees. So I went to the doc and she diagnosed me with scarlet fever. So she gave me amoxiciila and methylprednisolone.
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 f tn Well, has she had a strep test? The rash could be scarlet fever from the strep infection. 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.
Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
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 .

Avatar m tn I also had sores all over my body one time from what I read online I would say I had Scarlet fever but the doctor said its exactly like scarlet fever but its not?
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 I am very worried for him, and I know that the doctors are doing all the right tests for him, MRI-more blood work. Also does anyone know if scarlet fever has any type of relationship with these tests? My son had scarlet fever 3 times. Thank you for your help.
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 n tn However, red bumps that affect large parts of the body may be due to infectious or immunologic causes. They can also be a manifestation of an underlying disease process like scarlet fever or chicken pox. Now, I do not want to cause further worry.I suggest you seek consult with a dermatologist or your primary physician to have this properly assessed.A complete medical history and physical examination may help. Have you changed soap or lotion lately? Any history of allergies?
Avatar f tn i have had a ekg and told all is fine. it happens to alot of people. heres the thing my dad at the age 10 had scarlet fever. at the age of 44 died from a heart attack. i have lost two brothers ages 50 & 58. a sisster and brother have had heart attacks and lived.. we have same dad differnt mothers.. my question would be could the heart problem be in the genes? we were told my dads heart attack was due to his weakend heart from the scarlet fever. p.s.
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 m tn Start your research there, then be sure to also look into rheumatic fever - which is an after effect of the the strep bacteria that causes scarlet fever and involves various inflammatory and auto-immune conditions. It's sort of like having an allergic reaction to an infection. The body then attacks its own organs as if they were the infection - cross reactivity of antibodies.
Avatar f tn scarlet fever is rare, but i had it when i was 11.i had the same type of fever...
Avatar f tn Other possibilities needed to be ruled out are viral exanthem, Mycoplasma pneumoniae - serological test and chest radiography is important to rule out and should be treated with appropriate antibiotic, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (it is tick borne disease and needs serological test for diagnosis), infectious mononucleosis, and scarlet fever; as a result of streptococcal tonsillopharyngitis, Kawasaki disease, and dengue. Hence, you need to undergo serological tests for few common causes.
Avatar m tn White patches on the tonsils are generally pus and can be caused by a number of things, such as tonsillitis, thrush, or mono. I'd recommend taking him in to see an MD. I've had my tonsils removed due to recurring tonsillitis and the sooner he can get on antibiotics if that's what it is, the sooner his pain and other symptoms will go away.
