Scarlatina Miliaris


Categories: DESCRIPTION OF SCARLET-FEVER.
Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

Sometimes the red patches of the rash are covered with small vesicles of

the size of mustard-seed, which either dry up or discharge a watery

liquid, leaving thin white scurfs, that come away with the cuticle

during desquamation. Although this form, called _scarlatina miliaris_,

being the result of exudation from the capillary vessels, shows an

intensely inflamed state of the skin, its course is usually mild and its

issue favorable; because the morbid poison comes readily to the

surface.
