    Default Scarlet fever!

    My 3.5yr old has it.
    It's uncommon right??
    His brother has Impetigo and apparently they're related.

    I had it when I was about 7. I can still remember parts of it and I remember being miserable. I hope your little one feels better soon.

    Default Scarlet fever!

    I had it when I was in year 9 - my doctor was so confused about how I got it! I got rheumatic fever alongside it which is apparently really common and I seem to remember that was the more concerning one because it can damage the heart valves or something. Hope your little one is feeling ok. Does he have the strawberry tongue?!

    Thanks for your replies. I haven't checked his tongue actually!
    He's miserable and has hot legs.
    Hopefully antibiotics kick in quick.

    I had it when I was 7.

    My 4-year old has it now (again) - the first batch of antibiotics didn't kill it

    I suspect my ds may have recently had a mild case of it. He had a very sore throat, fever, nausia, runs, and then broke out in a rash on his torso and limbs. Dr said it was a viral rash from the temp, but being the weekend next day and no drs or chemists open around here he perscribed me antibiotics 'just in case'. I started giving them to him the next day as he wasnt getting better and within a few hours of first dose he started getting better.
