My sixteen year old sister was diagnosed with scarlet fever, but we later took her to the hospital and they said it's not. They have no idea what it is. she has an itchy, blotchy red rash that is all over her body and is getting darker. Her symptoms include fever, congestion, mucousy cough, swollen tonsils, hurts to swallow, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue, aching muscles, vaginal bleeding (not her period because she already had hers). It started out like a cold but progressively got worse. She is constantly around smokers but she doesn't smoke. Can someone please help me figure this out?
