2. Sore Throat
A sore throat is one of the first common signs of the flu or having a cold, but it can also be a general sign that goes together with a number of different infections – including what’s called “strep throat”, some types of respiratory infections and most cases of Scarlet Fever. Trouble swallowing and throat redness might also accompany this symptom.
The difference between a regular sore throat and Scarlet Fever is the presence of the characteristic Scarlet Fever-rash on the skin and the symptom known as “strawberry tongue” where the redness and other symptoms spread to the mouth and throat – usually together with pain and discomfort.
The symptom of a sore throat can be symptomatically relieved for the infection’s duration with proper hydration throughout. This symptom usually disappears along with the rest of the infection, although might stick around for a few days longer than the rash before going away completely.
