Hello Mrs. Wuriana

The complaints experienced by your child do resemble measles, these complaints can also be caused by other diseases such as dengue fever, chickenpox, viral exhantem (a rash on the skin caused by a viral infection), allergies, impetigo. Treatment for each disease condition is different depending on what is the source of the problem, so what is experienced by your child should be confirmed first by taking him to the doctor so that he can be studied further regarding his current condition.

Measles itself is an infectious disease caused by a virus, the symptoms of which are fever accompanied by red patches on the skin surface, other symptoms include nasal congestion, sore throat, and red eyes. Actually measles can heal by itself as long as the child's immune system is well maintained, so it is recommended that your child consume lots of water to avoid dehydration due to fever, then advise your child to get plenty of rest and avoid exposure to light for a long time (playing). gadgets, watching TV, etc.), then the use of fever medicine such as paracetamol may be given as an initial treatment in overcoming fever. And don't forget to give a warm compress to reduce fever. Measles can actually be prevented, so if your child's immunizations are not complete, it should be completed by taking them to the puskesmas or other health facilities close to the mother's domicile. If his condition seems to be getting weaker or worse, then taking him to the doctor is the most appropriate choice so that he can immediately identify what is causing the complaint in your child.

Hope it is useful
