The bacteria sometimes make a poison (toxin), which causes a rash — the “scarlet” of scarlet fever. How you get scarlet fever Group A strep live in the nose and throat and can easily spread to other people. Jan 02, 2019 · 3.2 Definitions. Fever (pyrexia) is a regulated body temperature above the normal range occurring as a result of IL-1-mediated elevation of the hypothalamic set point. Once fever is established, body temperature is regulated, as in health, by a net balance between heat production and loss. 1. Introduction. Scarlet fever ranked as one of the most severe infectious diseases prior to the widespread use of antibiotics in the 1940s.
