Scarlet fever - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nice entry from Wikipedia on Scarlet fever with a pic of classic strawberry tongue.

Now that the kiddies are all back in school, strep is in full swing. Some strains of strep throat will have an associated rash that develops that we call " scarlatina"

Usually a rapid strep test and a thorough history and physical exam is required to make the diagnois.
