In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
