Measles, rubeola, or measles (in some areas also referred to as tampek, or morbilli) are infectious diseases that are infectious or infectious since the beginning of the masaprodromal, which is the range of the first 4 days since the appearance of the rash. Measles is caused by paramicsovirus (measles virus). Transmission occurs through saliva splashes from the nose, mouth and throat of measles sufferers (water borne disease).
Immunity to measles is obtained after vaccination, active infection and passive immunity in a baby born to an immune mother (lasting for 1 year). People who are vulnerable to measles are: - babies over 1 year old - babies who are not immunized - teens and young adults who have not yet received a second immunization.
Symptoms begin to appear within 7-14 days after infection, which is in the form of fever, sore throat, cough colds and red eyes.2-4 days later small white spots appear in the inside of the mouth (Koplik spots). A rash (redness on the skin) that feels somewhat itchy appears 3-5 days after the onset of the above symptoms. This rash can be shaped macular (horizontal red rash) and papules (prominent reddish rash). At first the rash appears on the face, namely in front of and below the ear and on the side of the neck.
