Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

After the bath, the patient is rubbed dry, and either taken to his bed,

or, if he feels well enough, dressed and induced to walk about the room,

or placed in a snug corner (not near the fire, however), till he feels

tired and wishes to go to bed. During his stay out of bed, the rash

ought to be an object of constant attention for his friends; for as soon

as it becomes pale, the patient ought to be sent to bed immediately and

covered well, or should then the rash continue to become paler and

paler, the pack should be renewed, and the patient kept in bed ever

after, till desquamation is over.
