  • Never had strep BUT they get what looks like a mild heat rash EVERY time they get a fever of above 100. It is reaction to a viral infection their ped said. Some kids do that.

  • My kids have never but when I was younger and up through my teens I was famous for strep atleast once a year accompanied by a rash. It was terrible and I had always hoped my kids didn't inherit it from me (so far i've been lucky).. Not much can be done except to keep it moist and wait for it to pass. But of course the strep can be treated ;)
