1 Bump

Measles

My son broke out in a red rash all over his stomach, bottom, leggs, spots on his hand and face. He also has a very deep and constant cough since the bumps appeared yesterday. while visiting his g-gma she asked if he had measles. I researched it and it looks similar and he also has diarrhea. Anyone have kids whom have had measles and possibly have real pics of what it looked like on them?

  • Sorry, I don't have any pics...my kids haven't contracted measles :(

    Maybe go to WebMD and see what's posted there for pictures of them?

  • Google measles, then hit the "Images" tab. Don't freak out if your son does have Measles. It used to be just as common as Chicken Pox. Your mom and her siblings/friends probably had it. Just take your kiddo to a doctor and get him checked out. By the way, vaccinated children can and do get Measles.
