What is rheumatic fever?

This disease can occur after an episode of streptococcal pharyngitis ("strep throat"). Some patients may experience inflammation of the heart, damaging the heart valves. Prompt antibiotic treatment is important to prevent heart problems

  • Joint pain even when resting

  • Feeling breathless

  • Swelling of any body part

  • Skin hardening

  • Skin redness or red bumpy rashes

  • Sore throat

  • Joints feel warm

Questions your doctor may ask to check for rheumatic fever

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose rheumatic fever

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you have joint pain even when you are at rest?

  • Are you breathless or having hard time breathing?

  • Do you have any swelling in any part of your body?

  • Do you have hardening of the skin?

Treatment for rheumatic fever

Treatment aims to kill the remaining bacteria and reduce inflammation. The doctor may prescribe antibiotics for a long time (years) even after the initial infection settles. Heart valve damage may only show up after decades, hence long-term follow-up may be advised.
