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 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 n tn 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. If the docs catch it early and treat it quickly there is usually no residue at the end however alot of ugly things can pop up if it allowed to rage thru your body...hope i answered your question okay.......

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.

Avatar n tn A rash and a fever could be scarlet fever. How high is the temp?
Avatar n tn Probiotics is a great idea, and whatever else you usually do for your son when he gets backed up. But I really think that since he just had scarlet fever, you should take your child to your pediatrician and let him get that indigestion straight for you, plus he can doublecheck on how that scarlet fever is doing, too.

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 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 f tn if your child have red spots on her tongue it could be scarlet fever i just looked it up and the rash under her arms and pubic area are also signs of scarlet fever and how she has had strep
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 If your blood was drawn while you were on ceftin, your HGB could be decreased because antibiotics could lower HGB levels. Nonetheless, there may be other factors causing this HGB drop, so it is a good idea to have it monitored closely after you finish the doxy. The high SED rate is indicative of inflammation, likely caused by the infection.
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.
