Likely PCP / Ortho: As a family physician, i would say your primary care provider (pcp) would definately be a good place to start. From there, you may need to see any number of specialists, if your pcp is concerned. These may include an orthopedist, rheumatologist, or infectious disease specialist. However, it is likely most efficient to see your pcp to get an initial evaluation.

Breathable Layers: Unfortunately, there is no perfect solutio here. I would, however, try and take some advice from the world of outdoor sports. First, layer to allow for adjustments in temperatures as you go about your day. Second, choose breathable materials to allow your body to regulate heat more effectively. Finally, watch out for the extreme temperatures that can come in summer, espcially while pregnant.

Yes.: Scarlet fever is the result of an infection due to streptococcus bacteria, typically resulting from strep throat in children. So, your child would be considered contagious until treated for their presumed strep infection. Just make sure the rash is actually scarlett fever and not resulting from a different cause such as a virus.
