Measles/simple virus: Many simple viral illnesses are followed by a rash when the fever subsides.It is not specific to measles. An exam & review of the pattern would be requires to sort this out. Regular measles is usually a hard illness on anyone at any age. If this passed quickly & resolved it is likely not. Some call a similar pattern "baby measles" but it is not related to that virus.
