"Dawn Drewes was absolutely amazing. This was my first telehealth visit ever and I felt I got the same level of care I would get in person. Good health providers can be difficult to find and Dawn Drewes is one of the good ones. Her personality really puts you at ease and she communicates beautifully. Everything we discussed was clear and concise but she is open to any questions you have if need be. I will be a loyal patient going forward."

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.

If left untreated, scarlet fever can cause complications 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.
