The glands of an individual may be swollen and a whitish coating may be developed as tonsils.
The tongue of the patient gets yellow along with loss of appetite, aches in body and chills followed by nausea which are the most common symptoms that usually may be seen. If you visit a doctor then, he will examine the severity of scarlet fever. The physician diagnoses this problem with the help of strep bacterium tests, after confirming he will advise you to use medication.
