Thanks for the query
Scarlet fever is caused by group a streptococcus and it used to be one of the leading cause for death in chilhood but now there are good antibiotics to take care of it.
There are many complications of scarlet fever including rheumatic fever. I suggest if the fever is not coming down and she is looking more sick kindly get her admitted and treated with IV antibiotics.
