Pediatrics 35 years experience
No.: First of all, the measles rash does not spare forehead and chin. Secondly, the measles rash comes in the middle of a violent illness with fever, cough, headache, ear and eye infections; with slapped cheek rash, generally, what you see is what you get.
Dr. HECTOR Franco
Dermatology 46 years experience
No : Measles tends to appear as small spots whereas the rash of erythema infectiosum characteristically appears as a solid redness on the cheek (slapped cheek) with lacy like red spots or blotches on the extremities.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
No: With measles there are discrete lesions. When slapped it can leave a pink, raised area of skin.
