  • Go to the ER. Scarlet fever killed my dad's mother when she was in her early 20's. Granted health care has come a long way since then, but scarlet fever is very serious, especially in a child as young as 4.

  • My son was just diagnosed with strep on Sun. (had to take him to the er as he had a seizure) and his tummy hurt a lot. My DD also vomits when she has strep. It could be the strep or it could be the antibiotics - some of them can upset the stomach. Call the doc to get a guideline - like if it still hurts tomorrow take her in, etc. Hope she feels better soon!

  • scarlet fever is part of the strep infection and with antibiotics it can be cured and dealt with before any worse happens
