I started feeling ill Wednesday afternoon and after a rough night of no sleep Wednesday night, I fainted in the morning after taking two ibuprofen and went to see a doctor right away. Turns out that I have strep throat. The doctor thought I fainted because of how fatigued I was - I probably had a total of 90 minutes of sleep Wednesday evening...my throat was so sore! I personally think it was the ibuprofen that dropped my bp, causing me to faint. So...I'm taking antibiotics for 10 days. Today I noticed that I'm developing a scarlet fever rash on my torso. My throat isn't sore anymore and I feel like I'm getting better. From all my research about scarlet fever, the rash comes a day or two after the strep throat begins and is relatively harmless as long as the strep infection is being treated. I was just wondering if anybody has personally experienced scarlet fever as an adult or a child? Or maybe has had a child that experienced it? It's just simply weird.
