  • Answer: No. Scarlet fever (called Scarlatina in days gone by) is defined as a particular rash in the setting of a proven streptococcal infection. Usually, this is strep pharyngitis (sore throat), but it can be any strep infection (skin, etc). The rash is pretty classic, involving the face with sparing of the area around the mouth and lips (peri-oral pallor - because the area looks pale compared to the rest of the face), and involving the creased areas more than others (armpits, groin folds, etc). The rash also feels very rough to the touch - leading it to be called a "sandpaper rash."I saw a patient with this last week :)
