A number of children are presenting in school with obvious skin rashes.
Most of these appear to be slapped cheek. However, we have two confirmed cases of scarlet fever. Scarlet fever needs to be treated with a course of antibiotics. Slapped cheek will fade on its own in a few weeks.
If you are concerned about a rash on your child, please make an appointment with your GP.

PUPILS of a Tamerton Foliot school pulled on their jim-jams to help raise funds for the victims of the Nepal earthquake disaster.
Year six student, 11-year-old Jessica Floyd, from Mary Dean Church of England primary school in Mary Dean Avenue had seen the news reports on the devastating earthquake and asked head teacher Tracey Jones for permission to hold a fundraising event.
The pyjama day raised a staggering total of £400.77 although Jessica said more money was still coming in.
Jessica said: "The money will be sent directly to Nepal through a local link.
"Thank you to everyone who donated and please keep giving through alternative charities."
