Scarlet Fever

We have been advised of one confirmed case of Scarlet Fever.

Scarlet Fever is mainly a childhood disease affecting children between the ages of two and eight years old. It is usually treated with antibiotics and children should stay away from school or nursery to prevent the infection from spreading.  They can return once they have had 24 hours of treatment.

The first symptoms of scarlet fever are often a sore throat, headache, fever, nausea and vomiting. After 12-48 hours a fine red rash develops, which feels rough. There can be a white coating on the tongue, which peels a few days later, leaving the tongue swollen. Glands in the neck can also be swollen. Children can feel tired and unwell!

If you think you or your child have scarlet feveWer you should: see your doctor as soon as possible; make sure you/your child takes the full course of antibiotics prescribed by the doctor; stay at home from school or work for at least 24 hours. Scarlet fever is passed on in the same way as colds. You can stop passing it on to other family members by: frequent hand washingnot using the same cutlery or plates/bowls etcnot sharing clothes, bedding or towels.
