Ok so last friday night my son got sick and had a fever of 103 I took him to the doctor on sun bc he broke out in bumps all over his body. The doctor told me it was scarlet fever and put him on med, now for the last 2 days his finger tips are peeling its where the finger prints are and today it has gotten so bad that all the skin is gone and they are starting to bleed not bad but like lil spots of blood, He missed 3 days of school last week and i don't know if i should keep him home tomorrow and take him to doctor again or send him, I keep thinking of how painful and about germs in school with them open like that, Please if you have any ideals let me knowAnswer Question

The school will most likely send him back home anyway so keep him home and get into the Doctor. Maybe the peeling is a side effect or an allergic reaction to the meds. Have you googled Scarlet Fever to see what the time frames are regarding being home and contagious? Also try googling the medication.
