Can I pass scarlet fever from one child to another if I see them a day apart?


Probably not.
How to prevent scarlet fever from spreading The rash itself is not contagious. Still, scarlet fever can spread easily to family members and your child's classmates if your child sneezes, coughs or exhales near them. Any child or adult who lives in your home and has similar symptoms in the next five days after exposure should have a throat swab.
Your child is no longer contagious after they have been on antibiotics for 24 hours. That means your child can return to school after one day if they are feeling better.

Other tips to prevent spreading the infection include:

  • washing hands with warm soapy water
  • not sharing drinking glasses or eating utensils with friends or classmates
  • washing your child's dining utensils and drinking glasses in hot soapy water or a dishwasher
  • sneezing into the elbow or covering the mouth and nose when coughing.

Treatment of lyme disease


Treatments and drugs
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Antibiotics are used to treat Lyme disease. In general, recovery will be quicker and more complete the sooner treatment begins.

Antibiotics




  • Oral antibiotics. These are the standard treatment for early-stage Lyme disease. These usually include doxycycline for adults and children older than 8, or amoxicillin or cefuroxime for adults, younger children, and pregnant or breast-feeding women. A 14- to 21-day course of antibiotics is usually recommended, but some studies suggest that courses lasting 10 to 14 days are equally effective.


  • Intravenous antibiotics. If the disease involves the central nervous system, your doctor may recommend treatment with an intravenous antibiotic for 14 to 28 days. This is effective in eliminating infection, although it may take some time to recover from your symptoms. Intravenous antibiotics can cause various side effects, including a lower white blood cell count, mild to severe diarrhea, or colonization or infection with other antibiotic resistant organisms unrelated to Lyme.


After treatment, a small number of people still experience some symptoms, such as muscle aches and fatigue. The cause of these continuing symptoms is unknown, and treating with more antibiotics doesn\'t help. Some experts believe that certain people who get Lyme disease are predisposed to develop an autoimmune response that contributes to their symptoms. More research is needed.

Bismacine


The Food and Drug Administration warns against the use of bismacine, an injectable compound prescribed by some alternative medicine practitioners to treat Lyme disease. Bismacine, also known as chromacine, contains high levels of the metal bismuth. Although bismuth is safely used in some oral medications for stomach ulcers, it\'s not approved for use in injectable form or as a treatment for Lyme disease. Bismacine can cause bismuth poisoning, which may lead to heart and kidney failure.

My husband has flu and my friend told me that he has to drink a lot. Does that really help?


Yes, your husband should stay well hydrated and drink at least 8 cups of water a day. The water helps to thin down mucus which has the potential to hang around and turn into a respiratory infection. Hot drinks also have the added benefit of being soothing for sore throats etc.

Avoid caffeine filled drinks as they can cause dehydration.

I have the same problem, too!


If your LCD is 8 months old, still under manufacturers warranty. I would call them back and ask them to provide you with a telephone number of their nearest service center to you and have it repair under warranty. The failure is with the video board or main board.
Good Luck.
