What are measles?
Disease is a very contagious disease that can be spread by droplets in the air or by direct contact with the patient's throat and throat excrement. The period of incubation in measles is usually 7 to 18 days, up to 21 days.
The patient will have the following symptoms, including:
- Fever, leaky nose, red eyes, cough, white spots in the mouth
- The patient will have measles to infect the other four days before the rash and 4 days after the rash.
- After 3 to 7 days of infection, the skin will develop a colored rash that usually spreads from face to body.
- The rash can last for 4 to 7 days, or even 3 weeks, after which it leaves a stain or peeling.
- When the condition is serious, it can affect the respiratory system, digestive tract and brain, and even die.
According to the Center for Health Protection, measles are caused by the virus of the goddess, and vaccination is the most effective preventive method. Although no specific therapies exist, prescription drugs can alleviate symptoms, and antibiotics can also be used to treat complications that are caused by bacteria.
Patients should avoid contact with uninfected persons, such as poorly resistant pregnant women and children under one year of age. The current scheme of immunization of children in Hong Kong is vaccination against measles, mumps and German goddesses (MMR mixed vaccine) for children aged one and one year.
