Confirmed case of Scarlet Fever

24 November 2022 (by admin)

Dear parents and carers, 

We have a confirmed case of Scarlet fever within Pen Mill Infant and Nursery Academy. 

The first signs of scarlet fever can be flu-like symptoms, including a high temperature, a sore throat and swollen neck glands (a large lump on the side of your neck).

A rash appears 12 to 48 hours later. It looks looks like small, raised bumps and starts on the chest and tummy, then spreads. The rash makes your skin feel rough, like sandpaper.

Please see the attached NHS link for more information -

Many thanks
