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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
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 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 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 . . .
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 He told me it was probably still scarlet fever and that I should continue with the antibiotics and let him know if it worsens by tomorrow. Right now, it's sort of appearing on my outer arms (spreading up from hands), and also up my legs (from ankles). This rash is slightly different from the original one, in that the spots are larger, and while raised slightly, not as much as the original rash. I'm wondering if it's possible that this is due to an STD or I (possibly syphilis?
Avatar m tn Then there is this rheumatic fever and scarlet fever. My best friend woke up with a rash and high fever and opened all the windows (it was winter). Luckily her other friend lived near by and walked in and said what are doing it is freezing in here. He is a microbiologist too like me and he took her to the hospital. She had scarlet fever from Strep throat. I don't know if your murmur was always there like mine they didn't find it until I was in my 20's and it is a small one.
Avatar f tn She said it just went away.When they took the throat culture, it came back the next day. Now, she has this. I am familiar with Strep throat symptoms and I know that sometimes it can get really bad if you don't get to a doctor for treatment. But.....what's with the 2 lumps? BTW...she can still talk on the phone and puff away at her cigarettes! Any information about what this could possibly be would be helpful....is it contagious? Scarlet fever? Rheumatic fever? Bad case of Mono? .......
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 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.
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 ASO / Strep antibodies / Strep group A throat culture / Recent scarlet fever / anti-deoxyribonuclease B / anti-hyaluronidase Major Diagnostic Criteria -Carditis -Polyarthritis -Chorea -Erythema marginatum -Subcutaneous Nodules Minor Diagnostic Criteria -Fever -Arthralgia -Previous rheumatic fever or rheumatic heart disease -Acute phase reactions: ESR / CRP / Leukocytosis -Prolonged PR interval The question is, if you had Rheumatic Fever,, which lasts on the average a little over 100
