DescriptionMeasles is spread through respiration (contact with fluids from an infected person's nose and mouth, either directly or through aerosol transmission), and is highly contagious. The rash in measles is classically described as a generalised, maculopapular, erythematous rash that begins several days after the fever starts. The incubation period usually lasts for 10-12 days (during which there are no symptoms). Infections occurs by droplets from the mouth or nose. It may start like a bad cold with lots of catarrh and a temperature. Infected people remain contagious from the appearance of the first symptoms until 3-5 days after the rash appears
