Measles is a viral disease usually occurring in children. It is considered one of the most contagious of all infections. One attack usually gives immunity for life.
It is caused by a virus which is spread through the air by coughing and sneezing. People can spread the infection to others as early as a day after making contact with the disease and remain infectious for about a week after the symptoms first appear.
Signs & Symptoms
Symptoms appear 7 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. These usually start with a fever, running nose, sore eyes and a feeling of weakness.
A cough and sore throat soon follow. After a few days, a rash with small rounded spots appears on the sides of the face and the neck, and gradually spreads throughout the body surfaces. With time these spots turn darker from pink colour.
Turmeric, neem, lemon, and tulsi are the wellknown remedies for measles.
Do's & Don'ts
The affected child should be placed in a clean well ventilated environment. Liquid diet consisting of milk and fresh fruit juices should be given initially. Children suffering from measles should be isolated so as to contain the infection. Children should be vaccinated against measles at the advocated time.
