symptoms of measles

Measles symptoms invariably include fever, together with at least one of the three C's (cough, coryza, conjunctivitis). 

Symptoms will appear about 9-11 days after infection, and may include the following:

  • Coryza - runny nose.
  • Dry hacking cough.
  • Conjunctivitis - swollen eyelids, inflamed eyes.
  • Watery eyes.
  • Photophobia - sensitivity to light.
  • Sneezing.

  • Fever - this may be mild to severe and can reach 105F (40.6C) for a number of days. Fever may drop, and then rise again when the rash appears.

  • Koplik's spots - very small grayish-white spots with bluish-white centers in the mouth, insides of cheeks, and throat.

  • Aches generally all over the body.

Rash - 3 to 4 days after initial symptoms a reddish-brown spotty rash appears. The rash can last for over a week. It usually starts behind the ears and spreads all over the head and neck. After a couple of days it spreads to the rest of the body, including the legs. As the little spots grow many of them will join together.
Although the majority of childhood rashes are not measles, you should take your child to the doctor if:
You suspect it could be measles.

  • Symptoms do not improve, or get worse.

  • The fever rises to above 38C (100F).

  • When the symptoms have gone, but the fever hasn't.

The measles rash typically has a red or reddish brown blotchy appearance, and first usually shows up on the forehead, then spreads downward over the face, neck, and body, then down to the arms and feet..
