MEASLES INFORMATION

Measles is an extremely contagious viral illness with symptoms of fever (>38), runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis , white spots in the mouth and a rash developing 2-4 days after the first symptoms. It has an incubation period of 10-12 days and is caught through the air by infected droplets (which can survive 2 hours in the air) or direct contact with the secretions from the nose or throat of infected persons, including touching contaminated items or surfaces. The rash lasts about a week.

If you think you or your child possibly have measles or contacted someone with measles, please speak to a nurse  .DO NOT COME IN OR MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. The nurse will advise you on appropriate care. This may involve us coming to see you or your child at home.

There is no treatment-just supportive care, good nutrition, vitamin A supplements and good fluid intake. Serious complications (ear infections, diarrhoea, pneumonia, encephalitis) will require treatment and possible hospital admission.
