Hm. I just read the link to the med page that ss provided. Maybe it was a big deal for me because maybe I had one of the complications mentioned...possibly Acute rheumatic fever? Dunno. I was about 8, so I wouldn't know.
I would think it's a very good idea to keep her away from other kids for the 7 days. The incubation period, by definition, means that no signs of illness may occur during those 7 days.
I had scarlet fever as a kid, and it was a biggie for me. I was out of school for a month. I remember what it was like. It was terrible. Definitely harder for me than the chicken pox were. I do know that everyone is different though...sounds like some kids get it more mildly and...
When my dd hits me, I say, "Ouch that hurts!" and "I need to be safe!" Then I either move her away from me or move away from her. Then I tell her to be gentle, and show her a gentle touch and then she practices it.

Today I start my last quarter of school. In March, I...

My own personal experiences make me angry when I think about how difficult it is to get help from the system. This makes more savvy people, also probably more capable, know how to better milk it, while people who need it have a hard time cutting through all the red tape.

I have a cousin who served in the Navy, along with his wife, both officers in the health care field. They had every little illness documented, knew the right people (doctors),...
