It has been identified as Scarlet fever. Yesterday at doctor’s office strep test was conducted to confirm this. A swab was used to take the culture from throat and then it was placed on a test kit. Result was positive. The test line getting darkened confirmed it as Scarlet fever caused by bacterial infection in throat. Surprisingly Adi did not complain about throat discomfort and her throat was clear when examined. May be this was the early stage.  The girl did not like the strep test and we had to force her to lie down and hold her arms and legs when the culture was taken :(.  Googling says if left unattended this could have become a serious case. God’s will we acted earlier without sitting on it factoring in climate changes and common cold and flu.  Anyways to get rid of the bacteria infection completely she will be on antibiotics for next 10 days.  Doctor said it will take another two to three weeks for the bumps/rashes to disappear.  She is having slight fever in the night that leads to disturbed sleep and little whining in the morning. Otherwise she is all good.

Thanks a lot guys for such nice comments. Work is pressing but I am writing this quick post to let you all good hearts know that Adi is doing good.  Thanks again. I am touched.

And guess what after the doctor’s appointment we did got for t-o-t as Adi calls it.  Its trick-o-treat (If you wonder what it is).

She was a bat girl this year and had loads of fun collecting treats from neighborhood and shops. 😀
