Natural & Home Remedies for Scarlet Fever
Scarlet Fever, the disease which killed thousands during the 19th century, makes a comeback very often
Also known as Scarletina, scarlet fever is caused by a bacterium, Group A Streptococcus, which is the most common cause of bacterial sore throat (“strep throat”). Symptoms of scarlet fever usually include a sore throat, fever and swollen glands.
In severe cases, the bacteria may become invasive, causing necrotising fasciitis (the “flesh eating” bug), septicaemia and toxic shock syndrome. An increase in cases of invasive strep A is of particular concern because it can be deadly, killing up to one in four of those diagnosed. The risk is highest in those already seriously ill with reduced immunity, but also depends on the type of infection and the strain.
Scarlet fever caused devastating epidemics through the 19th and early 20th centuries, and killed almost 5 per cent of those infected in 1914.
When your child has a strep throat, there’s a chance that he’ll get a rash known as scarlet fever or scarlatina. The symptoms of scarlet fever begin with a sore throat, a fever of 101 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (38.2–40 degrees Celsius), and headache. This is followed within twenty-four hours by a red rash covering the trunk, arms, and legs. The rash is slightly raised, which makes the skin feel like fine sandpaper. Your child’s face may turn red, too, with a pale area around his mouth. This redness will disappear in three to five days, leaving peeling skin in the areas where the rash was most intense (neck, underarms, groin, fingers, and toes). He may also have a white coated, then reddened, tongue, and mild abdominal pain.
If left untreated it can result in rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is a serious condition that can cause inflammation of the heart, joints, and nervous system.
Other complications that sometimes arise from scarlet fever include:
Acute rheumatic fever
Bone or joint problems (osteomyelitis or arthritis)
Ear infection (otitis media)
Inflammation of a gland (adenitis) or abscess
Kidney damage (glomerulonephritis)
Liver damage (hepatitis)
