Antibiotics use is approved for scarlet fever, which is currently breaking all-time records across England and Wales. GPs have been tasked with handling such cases, which can mean antibiotics for patients. Some may dispute the use of antibiotics for scarlet fever, but a fever of higher than 38.5 degrees Celsius is no ordinary fever at all. Something other than fever is present.Unless modern medicine comes up with a vaccine for scarlet fever, a qualified Marlow private GP like The Good Health Practice will see antibiotics as the only way. For everything else, it depends on the disease.
