  • The rash is common from strep, it's actually scarlet fever....no need to worry about the name of it. Peeling skin after the rash is common, but more often on the palms or soles of the feet. I think doing nothing is okay, but I do like the bag balm idea. Hopefully he'll feel more comfortable by tomorrow.
