Prevention of scarlet fever
The microbial infection resulting in scarlet fever is highly contagious. Ordinarily, there are no effective ways to evade such infections. When a patient is at home, it is better to follow these prevention methods:
• Keep the patient's drinking glasses as well as eating utensils, out of bounds to the other members of the family
• Wash the glasses and utensils thoroughly soap and hot water
• Any person caring for the patient infected with scarlet fever should wash his/her hands as frequently as possible.
• Do not let the other members in the family come into direct contact with the infected patient
