Yes, crazy scientifically and medically back theories by doctors.
Meningitis is a different strain of Strep, strep B, versus strep and scarlet fever which are strep A. Strep A can't turn into strep B.

I would also assume that if the OPs condition turned to scarlet fever, she would take meds at that point and stop any obscure risk of catching strep B while fighting strep A, so the factually incorrect fear mongering is uneccessary IMO.
