Scarlet Fever? Strep Throat...

2 of my little ones have both. They seem to be doing pretty good but I have no idea what to expect. So wondering if any Mom's out there might have some insight.

  • If they are both being treated, they will probably start feeling a lot better soon. Scarlet fever can have some serious side effects if untreated (damage to heart, kidneys, secondary infection), so I hope they are both on antibiotics. If treated quickly, there are usually no long-term side effects, though.
