Scarlet Fever

We have been told about instances of scarlet fever in our community. Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mostly affects young children. It's easily treated with antibiotics. If you suspect that you or your child has scarlet fever, contact your GP. NHS advice is to stay away from nursery, school or work for 24 hours after you take the first dose of antibiotics.
