Symptoms of measles


Measles is a highly contagious respiratory infection caused by a virus which causes rashes all over the body. It generally affects children who are not vaccinated. Symptoms of measles generally first appear within 10 to 12 days of exposure to the virus. A widespread skin rash is a classic sign which can last up to 7 days and commonly develops on the head and slowly spreads to other parts of the body. Consult a doctor if you notice these symptoms in your child or if your child is not vaccinated. #MeaslesImmunizationDay
