Measles

What are the symptoms of measles

The symptoms of measles can take anywhere from one to twelve days to appear after your child has been infected.  It begins like a normal cold - hoarse cough, runny nose and fever. The temperature will fluctuate between 100 and 104 degrees fahrenheit. The child will develop a rash that will start on the throat and behind the ears, then spread to the face and the rest of the body. The rash will initially appear as small, scarlet, slightly raised spots that will transform into irregular areas of a ruddy brown colour. Your baby's eyes may become red and sore. 
 

What is the treatment

There is no specific treatment for measles. You can follow some simple steps to alleviate your child's discomfort. Bathe your child's sore eyes with cotton wool soaked in warm water and dim the lights. You can give your child, baby aspirin to bring down the fever. She will probably not have much of an appetite, but ensure that her fluid intake is high. Call the doctor if she is still running a high temperature four days after breaking out in a rash. Inform the doctor if she becomes semi-conscious, develops an earache or laboured breathing, or a phlegmy cough.
 

What are the possible complications and how can I prevent measles

Your child may develop pneumonia, encephalitis or earache.  You can prevent it by ensuring that your child is inoculated against the disease when she is between 12 to 24 months. Her immunity will be lifelong.

this site has failed to take into account the emerging research linking mmr with autism (autistic enterocolitis syndrome) and/or inflammatory bowel disease. the government has tried to use the argument that other countries do not make use the three separate jabs. however, almost all these countries have no autism database. only the us has good data - and this shows a steep rise in autism.
