Go to ED: My advice is similar- go the ed immediately, so that the appropriate tests can be done to reach a diagnosis. It is also important with respect to public health. If certain diagnoses are to be considered, then protective gear must be worn. With respect to a diagnosis, not only could it be some infection from india (malaria, dengue, etc), but it can also be something from the us (meningitis, etc).

My 7yrs old has scarlet fever and the doctor gave her zithromax. She has finished all her medication, but still has a rash, headache, and fever?

Strep test?: Was a strep test done? Sometimes rashes and fevers are caused by viruses, and antibiotics don't work. Sometimes something that looks like scarlet fever can be caused by a similar germ called staph. If that's the case, a different antibiotic might be necessary. Whether the test was done or not, the persistence of symptoms despite antibiotics suggests the need for further investigation.

I felt pain on my chest, headache and fever in afternoon. What cause for this?

Many: Your symptoms are extremely non specific. If the chest pain continues or worsens see a doctor immediately, especially if associated with difficulty breathing.

My brother has had a headache and fever for 2 days. I accidentally drank from his cup. Will I become sick too?

Maybe: Depends upon how soon after he drank from it, whether it was washed first. If he has a viral illness, hand washing and avoiding intimate contact will minimize your risk of getting infected, but classically these illnesses pass through members of the same household with regularity, and the drinking cup may or may not make any difference.
