Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms
There are also mild cases of scarlet-fever, when little or no rash
appears, and the throat is very little affected. These are the result of
a particularly mild character of the epidemy, together with a peculiar
condition of the skin, the desquamation of which shows that the poison
went to the surface without producing the usual state of inflammation,
or the rash peculiar to the disease. This form, called _scarlatina sine
exanthemate_, is extremely rare.
