I am travelling in Vietnam and broke out with the measles two days ago. This is day three, and my body is covered in spots. I spent last night throwing up and diarrhea. I started having very small headaches a few days before the first spots and a bad one yesterday. I have sent pictures home to Canada for my doctor to confirm, but I do not have any doubt it is measles. I had red measles as a child and German measles in grade nine.
