Scarlet Fever is caused by Beta Hemolytic Sterptocus Bacteria. One of the most obvious symptoms of having this condition is having rashes.
A rash is considered to be a common symptom, so the person who has scarlet Fever would need to take some tests to determine what the person has. When Scarlet Fever is not immediately cured, this can lead to having Rheumatic Fever, which can be treated with antibiotics. It is best for people to get themselves checked immediately.
