vs Rubella and Roseola
Onset of illness
but the classic sign, is a red (flat) rash, which usually starts on the face three to five days after the start of symptoms, and then spreads to the rest of the body.
Less likely complications
Other ways to spread disease
It is so contagious, that a single infected person will spread it to nine out of ten, non-immune people, who live with them.
Duration of contagiousness
One reason, is that it can be spread four days before a rash develops, and continue for four days after the start of the rash.
Fortunately, most people do not get the disease more than once.
Testing for the measles virus in suspected cases is important, for public health efforts.
Vitamin A supplementation, is also recommended in the developing world.
