      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.
