In brief: Scarlet Fever

Due to toxins produced by streptococcus pyogenes, the rash is red, with slight elevations of parts of the skin producing a sandpaper like feel, and the redness blanches with pressure.
There is usually pallor around the mouth. The rash can involve most of the body, often beginning on the trunk.
