Scarlet Fever affects children from the age of 3-15. Back in the 1800's, there was a high risk of getting Scarlet Fever, but of course they didn't have the technology like we do today. Getting Scarlet fever in today's society is extremely rare and if you do become infected with the disease you will have to take pills for a 10 day period. of course, the pills would have to be prescribed by a doctor.
