Dear Jennifer: magnets red dots you describe (palatal petechiae), are not diagnostic of anything, but are quite commonly seen with strep throat. If your rash is red fine bumps (like sandpaper), that would be typical of scarlet fever which is caused by strep throat. All in all, I’d suggest you see your doctor and will have neodymium magnets a throat culture done. Strep throat should be treated with antibiotics.
