Measles (Rubeola)

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout educates people about measles, also called rubeola, a very contagious disease caused by a virus. It describes symptoms, how it is spread, and how long a person is contagious. Though measles can be a serious disease with complications, there is no specific treatment other than bed rest, fluids, and control of fever. The document discusses the measles vaccination, which is usually combined with mumps and rubella (MMR). It offers advice to parents if they or their child have been exposed to measles.
