A Red Rash On The Skin That Feels Itchy After The Fever Goes Down?
please inform me if I really have measles, the article 3 days ago I had a fever, now it has come down. had a chance too. already lost. Now a rash appears on the skin and feels itchy.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should explain first:
Did you get the measles vaccination when you were little? Is there any exposure to people who have been exposed to measles or is there an increase in the incidence of measles around your area? How is the spread of the rash on your body and what is the shape of the rash? Basically a fever that is accompanied by a rash is not always caused by measles. If you have already been vaccinated against measles or you have no exposure to someone who has measles (and there are no measles events around your place of residence), then you are very unlikely to have measles. Rashes on measles generally appear around the 3rd or 4th day after the appearance of a fever, appear in the face area first and then spread to the body area, and generally the appearance of this rash will be accompanied by a higher fever (fever will peak until it reaches 40 -41 degrees Celsius on days 4 to 5). If your rash does appear after your fever has gone down, then it is likely that you are not measles.
Various infections that can cause the appearance of fever with a rash for example:
exanthema subitum dengue rubella dengue scarlet fever chicken pox eruption drugs and so on It is better to do a doctor's examination directly so that you can see the form of your rash and further examined the signs and symptoms that you experience. For the time being, because it is not yet clear whether your illness is contagious or not, you should avoid close contact with people around you and also avoid going to crowded and crowded places.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
