  • Funny my son never had any of the usual childhood diseases but he did get scarlet fever, he must have been around 7 or maybe 8 but after the fever subsided, the skin of the palm of his hands and the bottom of his feet peeled, and his doctor back then told me to have his heart checked because sometimes the disease affects it, I did and there was nothing wrong.

  • My son had it when he was younger; he tended to get strep a lot and did develop scarlet fever once. He did not have to be admitted into the hospital or anything.

    Hope your child feels better soon!

  • My 4 year old had it last year. He was on antibiotics for 7 or 10 days and it cleared it up.

    I didn't even know kids still got this and was shocked when the doctor told us that's what it was.

    Hope your little one starts feeling better soon.
