Pretty amazing, huh? Here are the facts:
-Thirty percent of people who get strep throat get scarlet fever.
-My symptoms are a rash that started all over my body at the same time accompanied with a soar throat and slight fever. The rash is somewhat flat and bright red and doesnt itch all that much.
-Thirty percent of people who get Scarlet Fever get Rhuematic Fever (sp?) within three to six weeks. Rheumatic Fever can cause heart damage and scarring of the kidneys, and ultimately death.
-I dependable way to get rid of the Strep bacteria is antibiotics. If you choose to use herbs to get rid of the bacteria, make sure to get a throat culture after you are feeling better. You may still have a small amount of bacteria in you, and it can re-grow if its not all gone.
-You can't catch Scarlet Fever by touching, mostly you can catch it from other peoples' saliva.
Well, thats really all i have time to write for now. I hope this is helpful information and helps educate people about this bacteria. s t a y h e a l t h y,
