Strep throat, scarlet fever in a 6 year old?
My 6 year old was diagnosed with Strep Throat 10 days ago. He finished his antibiotics today. He hasn't had a fever or sore throat for 8 days. Today he started itching and developed a rash on his face first then it has appeared on his back,stomach, arms, legs, hands and feet. No fever and no sore throat. Could this be scarlet fever even though he finished his antibiotics for strep? Or is it most likely something else? Calling Dr in the morning (hopefully she isn't on vacation for New Years Eve) but just wanted to see what the opinions are here on if it might be scarlet fever or not since the fever isn't there but was there 12 days ago until about 8 days ago (fever was 103-104).

This is more than likely a reaction to the antibiotics and giving him some benadryl regularly will help clear this up. You still need to make contact with his doctor and report the rash on the last day of his antibiotics and from now on, you probably need to list this drug as an allergy whenever he has medical care. It takes an average of 72 hours for any allergic reaction to clear the body so you will need to give him Benadryl regularly for at least that time frame.
