The difference between Scarlet fever and viral fever are Scarlet fever is caused by Group A streptococcus, generally affects the children between 5 to 15 yrs, thought it may affect any age group, it srarts with temp of 101 degrees F and is associated with fever, cough, sore throat, rashes all over the body, Sore throat will be very red in colour, Whitish coating of tongue, typically a straw berry tongue, headache, bodyache, nausea, vomitings, abd pain, swollen glands, where as viral fever also presents with rash all over body, fever will be lower grade, usually self limiting.,where as Scarlet fever if untreated by antibiotics leads to so many complications like Rheumatic fever, post streptococcal glomerulonephritis, ottitis media,skin infections, abscess in the throat, pneumonia, arthritis, most of the complications can be reduced by early antibiotics therapy,, where as viral fever give bed rest, Paracetamol, it automatically subsides on its own, no role of antibiotics too. simple prevention of scarlet fever is wash your hands with soap.I think this is enough Dr Vikas
