Re: Rash and then flu like symptoms on two occasions

Sounds like you're having trouble fighting off this infection, see your doctor about treating your severe sore throat. Ask for a throat culture to find out for sure which infection it is. Scarlet fever does look like a good match for your symptoms. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000974.htm


Your symptoms don't match the symptoms of the swine flu that I've heard of (fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing - some people also have runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea)
