What are Measles Symtpoms?
Symtpoms usually develop 8-12 days after exposure, with a rash developing 3-5 days after the first symtpoms appear. The first symptoms are similar to a severe cold and parents should be on the look out for:
- High fever
- Runny nose
- Red eyes
- Following the above symtpoms, white-to-bluish spots may appear in mouth
If your child is displaying the above symtpoms, call your peditrician and keep your child away from others to prevent spread.
