If your scarlet fever was appropriately treated with antibiotics and you have not experienced complications from this condition, the Red Cross does not list Scarlet Fever as a reason they would refuse blood donation.

You can read more about eligibility requirements for donating blood, including a list of medical conditions and treatments, at: Red Cross Eligibility Requirements for Donating Blood.
