Scarlet fever

Recommended Posts

I have just been informed by a parent that their child who was at school on Thursday has Scarlet fever. I have emailed all parents to let them know and told them what the symptoms are, I have also told them to seek medical advice if they think their child may have it and told them that children cannot return to school until being on antibiotics for 24 hours and feeling well again.

I am aware that this is a notifiable disease, is there anything else I need to do or should do???

My daughter has had it five times so far, once was so severe she was in hospital for five days. The dr told me it's a reportable illness for the health authority not education, so the drs have to report it. I told my daughters school, and they did phone the health authority who told them they didn't have to report it. Not sure if that helps x

we have had to contact the HPU twice ...once for swine flu and once for meningitis they were really helpful...just give them a ring and see what they say...i'm sure the deal is two cases or more but if in doubt give the experts a ring!
