Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Not only measles, fever, headache, chills, weakness, body aches, and red spots on the skin can also arise due to other causes, for example:
Dengue fever (dengue fever) Scarlatina fever Hand foot and mouth disease (singapore flu) Atopic dermatitis with secondary infections Malaria Leptospirosis, etc. Measles occurs due to viral infections that generally enter the body through the respiratory tract. This condition, vulnerable to be experienced by children, although not rule out also occurs in adults, especially those who come in close contact with other measles sufferers, do not get complete measles immunization, and have problems with their immune system.
This condition, considering the occurrence has exceeded 3 days, you should not consider trivial. Check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that you can be given the best treatment. Generally, in an effort to make a diagnosis, the doctor will also do blood tests, urine, or other supporting tests if needed.
As an initial treatment, we recommend that you take a paracetamol medication to reduce fever and relieve headaches and body pain. Expand to rest, multiply also drink water, and eat small but often. Avoid carelessly taking other medications, unless they are prescribed directly by a doctor. Do not forget, always keep personal hygiene and the environment around you in order to minimize the risk of infection.
Hope this helps ...
