My daughter got an itchy rash on her torso and scalp. My husband and I thought about everything from an allergic reaction to chicken pox. We took her to the doctor and she had strep throat. I had no idea!
It’s been only three weeks since she had it and last night the rash showed up, again!
The kicker here is there were no other symptoms. Had we not just been through this, I probably would have assumed it was an allergic reaction, given her an antihistamine and sent her to school today. I wouldn’t have known she had strep throat and was highly contagious!
So, word to the wise, Mommies…a rash can mean strep throat!
