About scarlet fever

Back to the top

Scarlet fever is a bacterial infection that accompanies strep throat. Spread through saliva droplets expelled while sneezing, coughing, or speaking, the bacteria that causes strep throat enters the body and releases a toxin that causes the symptoms of scarlet fever. Scarlet fever most commonly affects children between the age of 5-15.

Common symptoms of scarlet fever include:

  • A red rash that looks like a sunburn and is rough to the touch. The rash usually first appears on the face and neck and spreads to the rest of the body.
  • Folds of the skin around the armpit, neck, and groin become deep red
  • Flushed face A white tongue with red dots on the surface
  • Sore throat
  • Fever of 101 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Chills
  • Swollen tonsils
  • Swollen lymph nodes

Scarlet fever is highly contagious, but mostly affects children. The infection is treated with a course of antibiotics that can speed up recovery and reduce symptoms. In most cases, the infection will go away within 10 days to 2 weeks. Scarlet fever rarely causes complications, but if left untreated, it may result in conditions such as:


  • Rheumatic fever
  • Kidney infections
  • Ear infections
  • Pneumonia

If you or your child has a sore throat, a red rash, and a fever above 101 degrees Fahrenheit, talk to a health care provider right away. Treatment for scarlet fever is more effective the earlier it begins, so it is recommended that you seek medical attention as soon as possible.
