Ask the experts
My daughter may have been exposed to Scarlet Fever. Are there any precautions I should take now or do I just wait for her to show symptoms?
The rash is NOT contagious.
Once a person has been treated with effective antibiotics for 24-48 hrs they are no longer contagious.
I would watch for symptoms of the throat rather than skin changes and should someone develop a sudden sore throat the doctor should be contacted.
