In brief: 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
