Scarlet fever is back, watch for these warning signs

When our children are struck with an illness we are eager to find the right solution to bring them back to normal. When Scarlet Fever strikes, characterized by its rash, the itch, and sore throat, we rush into a frenzy to try anything to stop it. This frenzy has become more common since 2015 as there was a huge increase in scarlet fever cases, caused by a new aggressive strain. Luckily, we’ve come a long way since the pre-antibiotic middle-ages and have developed ways to treat both the symptoms and cure the infection.
