A viral infection that’s serious for small children but is easily preventable by a vaccine.

Requires a medical diagnosis.
 
Measles symptoms don’t appear until 10 to 14 days after exposure. They include cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever, and a red, blotchy skin rash.
Treatment consists of preventative measures.
 
There’s no treatment to get rid of an established measles infection, but over-the-counter fever reducers or vitamin A may help with symptoms.
