Measles: Measles signs and symptoms appear seven to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Signs and symptoms of measles typically include:fever, dry cough, runny nose, sore throat, inflamed eyes (conjunctivitis), sensitivity to light, tiny white spots with bluish-white centers found inside the mouth on the inner lining of the cheek, called koplik's spots, a skin rash made up of large, flat blotches.

Typical symptoms: Within seven to 14 days after getting infected with the measles, the first symptoms will appear. The earliest symptoms feel like a cold or the flu, with a fever, cough, runny nose, and sore throat. Often the eyes get red and runny. Three to five days later, a red or reddish-brown rash forms and spreads down the body from head to foot. 2-3 days later you may start to see tiny spots inside the mouth
