My 4 year old daughter was diagnosed with Scarlet Fever on a Wednesday.
She had a very high temperature on Monday and was very unwell ( Finding it difficult to swallow, no appetite, lethargic, unresponsive..even to chocolate) so i took her to my GP and was told she had a red throat and that as it was a viral infection it need not be treated with antibiotics. On Wednesday morning she developed a rash all over her chest, back and hands and was quickly spreading everywhere. I took her back to the GP and he diagnosed Scarlet Fever and prescribed a 10 day course of antibiotics. She is now feeling a lot better and the temperature has gone down and is starting to eat small amounts
