What are the symtoms of scarlet fever in a i year old child? What also are some of the long term effects of a i year old child after having scarlet fever un- checked for several days?
Scarlet : Scarlet fever is caused by group a streptoccoccus - the same bacteria that causes strep throat. The symptoms usually start 1-2 days after infection and include sore throat, fever, sand papery red rash, abdominal pain, muscle aches, headache, vomiting, swollen red tongue and/or bright red color in the creases of the underarm or groin. With proper antibiotic treatment, the symptoms typically improve quickly (2-3 days) though the rash can last for a few weeks. Long term complications are extremely rare with treatment. The most concerning complication is acute rheumatic fever which occurs around 20 days after the start of infection if the patient is not treated with antibiotics. This can cause permanent heart valve damage. Other rare complications of untreated strep are bone or joint problems, kidney problems, inflammation of a gland, ear infection, meningitis, pneumonia, or sinusitis.
