We need to be afraid of the scarlet again


British family doctors have called for attention to scarlet fever because the Victorian disease, a dreaded disease, has repeatedly become alarming.

We need to be afraid of the scarlet again

There are a number of primary schools throughout the United Kingdom, and the number of children infected with scarlet fever has not been as high as 50. The incidence of this highly infectious disease has risen sharply in recent years. According to data from the Public Health England Health Office, there were 6,157 new cases reported last September. In 2015, a total of 17,586 cases were registered in England, the highest number since 1967. To date, only 1678 cases have occurred in 2005. Health officials are uncertain about the cause of the sudden return of the scarlet fever and the current "long-lasting natural cycles". However, in the US, where the incidence of the disease is also growing, the bacterium has attributed the drug to a super-resistant and aggressive strain.
Most children between the ages of 2 and 8 years are infected with infectious diseases in March and April, respectively. It can cause sore throat, fever and skin rash, and if left untreated can lead to pneumonia. However, in the case of early treatment, its course is no more than a few unpleasant symptoms, although in Victorian times the disease was often equal to the fish.
Dr. Theresa Lamagni, Head of the Department of Public Health England Streptococcal Infection, said:
"Parents can play a key role in recognizing whether they need to take their child to the doctor. early signs include sore throat, headache, fever and characteristic pink / red tissue-like skin, which typically occurs on the chest and abdomen one to two days, but later extends to other body parts as well. Those who suspect themselves or their children have scarlet fever should seek medical attention as soon as a prompt antibiotic treatment is required. With the proposed antibiotic therapy, the symptoms usually go away after one week and most patients recover without events. "
