Patient :I had strep throat last week and was prescribed antibiotics for my symptoms. I ended up taking the antibiotics irregularly, and now I have a rash. I read that this rash could be scarlet fever, but I'm not really showing any other symptoms except a slight fever of 99. Is it possible that my irregular use of antibiotics caused the rash?
