Measles

Measles is a highly contagious virus characterized by a red, flat and blotchy rash. It is more often seen in children than adults. Other symptoms include fever, sore throat, cough, runny nose, small white spots in the insides of the cheeks, and conjunctivitis (red eye). When an infected person coughs or sneezes, droplets in the air can spread the virus to others. Once the virus establishes itself in the nose and throat of someone, that person becomes contagious. This occurs approximately four days before the rash appears, and the infected person remains contagious until four days after the rash has been present. Although measles was once an extremely common childhood illness, modern vaccinations have significantly reduced its occurence. The MMR vaccine, usually given to children between age one and 15 months with a second dose between ages four and six, provides an effective safeguard against this disease.
