Description:This photograph reveals skin lesions on the chest of a woman as a result of scarlet fever.
The rash first appears as tiny red bumps on the chest and abdomen, then spreads all over the body. It resembles a sun burn, and feels like a rough piece of sandpaper. It is usually redder in the axillary and groin areas.
