MEASLES
Treatment


 
   Management and Medication

The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine can prevent the disease. The vaccine occasionally causes side effects.

There is no specific treatment for measles and the virus has to run its course. The immune system should fight the infection. Recovery is usually expected within a couple of weeks.

The patient must be isolated to reduce the risk of transmission.

Plenty of fluids and extra rest are advised during the therapy. Fever can be controlled with ibuprofen or paracetamol. Vitamin A supplementation should be considered in order to prevent complications.

Hospital care and special treatment will be needed in severe cases of measles.
