Get through it: Measles is just a harsh viral illness for most who get it.I don't remember my case but it came after a "block party" which is how mom's made it predictable back then.If you received at least one shot you are less likely to have serious complications. Stay home, keep hydrated and let your physician know how you are progressing.
