Photo - This patient revealed a scarlet fever rash on the volar surface of the forearm due to group A Streptococcus bacteria. The scarlet fever rash first appears as tiny red bumps on the chest and abdomen that may spread all over the body. Looking like a sunburn, it feels like a rough piece of sandpaper, and lasts about 2-5 days. CDC. 1975. Used with permission.
