In brief: Scarlet Fever

A sore red throat with or without white patches, fever, enlarged lymph nodes and fine red sandpaper like rash to the face or trunk is suggestive of Scarlet Fever (strep throat with a rash).
Many viral infections can present similarly, so appropriate testing would be warranted prior to treating with antibiotics.
