Can you donate blood if you had scarlet fever in the 70 but had not been treated for it

Hello. Thank you for posting.

If scarlet fever was appropriately treated with antibiotics and a person has not experienced complications from this condition, the Red Cross does not specifically 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 http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood/eligibility-requirements
