Avatar n tn my son had scarlet fever when he was 8. Now at 17 every time he gets in the sun, the rash appears on his chest exactly in the same pattern it did when he was sick at age 8. It will go away with a tan, just appears at the first sign of sun exposure.
Avatar n tn You can try some over the counter Benadryl that is for Allergies. If it is bothering you to much then maybe call your doctor and see if you can get a same day appointment.
Avatar f tn I wanted to add to this because my son recently experienced the same thing. He had scarlet fever, which basically comes with strep throat for some people. It started just like that, I noticed tiny red dots all over his body. We got medicine for his strep and then just gave him oatmeal baths and used non scented lotion. It got really bad and the entire top layer of his skin ended up peeling off. It was not fun. Just a suggestion, hope I could help.
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 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 There was a vaccine back in the day for scarlet fever, but it has since been removed from the market. Simple anti-biotics can treat it though.
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 f tn I've got a rash. Started on my arms, now all over my body. Getting worse not better. Went to the docs she said scarlet fever but I don't have any other symptoms other than the rash. She put me on anti biotics but nothing is getting better after 2 days of taking them, and I've had the rash for 6 days now. My groin lymph nodes are swollen. I have a blocked ear and doc also said my throat is inflamed. Rash is just lots of little bumps. Some in clusters. Sometimes pink.
Avatar f tn As far as I know it is bacterial... the bacterial illness, scarlet fever, causes a distinctive pink-red rash, which occurs when the bacteria release toxins. Scarlet fever is extremely contagious - people can catch it by breathing in the bacteria in airborne droplets that come from an infected individual's sneezes or coughs. Infection may also occur as a result of touching the skin of an infected person, or touching surfaces or objects that the infected person has touched.
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 f tn But want to comment in case anyone else researching comes across this. The scarlet fever symptoms and the pink eye is indicative of possible Kawasaki syndrome. Ask your doctors about this possibility. Currently dealing with my sons battle with scarlet fever. Going into the second week...amoxicillin (10 days) seemed to work then on day 9 of treatment rash returned. We started azithromycin (3 days) thinking it developed resistance to penicillin. One dose of azithromycin made a HUGE difference.
Avatar n tn I NEED TO KNOW OF A GOOD OVER THE COUNTER COUGH MEDICINE,I HAVE A NAGGING COUGH THAT HURTS MY TEMPLE AREA WHEN COUGHING
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 f tn scarlet fever is rare, but i had it when i was 11.i had the same type of fever...
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 f tn Mitral valve prolapse is a structural anomoly of the valve that provides a one-way flow of blood from the left atrium (upper chamber) into the left ventricle (lower chamber). The anomoly is the leaflets that close over the valve opening to prevent any back flow of blood is impaired and blood flows back into the atrium rather than pumped into circulation. There is no direct cause for any irregular heartbeats associated with mitral valve prolapse.
Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
Avatar n tn But, I would like to know if there is an over the counter medicine. I only get the urgency after a little stress. It stops after 10 hours or so on it's own. But, a cheaper "as needed" OTC medicine would sure be something I am interested in.
Avatar f tn An over the counter medication is any medication that can be purchased without a prescription "over the counter", but does not make the medication safer and needs to be taken according to the directions on the package and there is a need to be more vigilent and take into consideration individual health, the benefits versus the risks and potential interactions with any prescribed meidcations.

Avatar f tn Hi I took my 4yr old Son to the doctors again yesterday with a fever, huge tonsils and breath that smelt. The doctore gave antibiotics for an infection to the tonsils and he thought the adenoids were also infected. 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.
