My 14 month old daughter has a rash on limbs and torso. No itching. No fever. She is acting normal. Could it be 3 day measles? Had rash four days.

Maybe: Three day measles is rubella and I have not seen a case...Ever...There is roseola which usually has 3 days of fever before the rash breaks out. Could be any number of viruses or a reaction to something...Glad she is acting normal. If you are concerned please see your pediatrician. Rashes really need to be seen because it is hard to tell from a brief description what they are. ...Read more

Measles vaccine: It is relatively common after receiving measles vaccine to have fever that will last 3-5 days. The area where the measles vaccine is given is painful.

Each of the 3 times i was pregnant it was found that i did not have the immunity to mmr. How concerned should I be with the current measles outbreak?

Each of the 3 times i was pregnant it was found that i did not have the immunity to mmr. How concerned should I be with the current measles outbreak?

MMR?: Were you tested for all three components or just rubella? The outbreak is rubeola red measles, not rubella. I would not suggest getting the MMR booster for an adult female. Cod liver oil can help as can chinese herbs- and i would see a chinese medicine practitioner for that. There is also a product called air tea that can be helpful (see www.Franzcenter.Com /herbaceuticals for more information). ...Read more
