Is This Strep

My ds (who is 4 years old) had a fever sunday morning-(out of no where) 102.5--sore throat, no appet_te, threw up twice, and then later that night he got a little rash on his face;very small red spots. He is going to the dr today but do you think this could be strep or something else? It almost sounds like scarlet fever--anyone have any experience/ Thanks ladies!

Missy--does he have any white patches on his tongue or the back of his mouth? If so, that is strep. About 2 weeks ago, my 5yr old had strep and then a few days later the rash came--due to the high fever. If the white spots are there, you will need to call your doc. to get an antibiotic.

Renea, I tried to look at his throat but it hurt him so bad for me to even do that-I thought I saw some white spots though. I just kindof freaked when I saw him get that rash!! But he is going to the dr in about an hour.

missy--how did the doctor appt. go? Was it strep? Hope your little boy is feeling better soon.

Thanks Renea! The dr said it was a bad cold, but he could still have strep;the test they did at the dr.'s came back negative but they are sending it to the lab to see for sure.

hey - i dont know where you are but here in upstate NY there are ALL kinds of nasty viruses and germs going around! hope the appt went well. for future reference its possible to have strep without white patches, or white patches without strep. strep can also cause a red rash i think my dd's pediatrician called it scarletina. she had strep when she was 4 weeks, got it from me :o( good luck hope your lo feels better!!!
