Strep Throat/Scarlet Fever
The symptoms of strep are usually a sore throat, fever, headache and possible vomiting or belly pain. Strep must be treated with an antibiotic, as untreated strep may lead to complications. Scarlet fever, despite its ominous name, is merely strep throat with a rash. Rheumatic fever was feared before the days of antibiotics; however, with prompt, adequate treatment, there is little danger today.
