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.

My six month old baby got measles! It came from upper body down to her feet after the second week. She also got a fever and I used to give her paracetamol.

My niece who is 6 months of age is now suffering a measles attack. She had rashes all her body a cough, fever and flu. I first saw the symptoms on the 4th day and I’m not aware that it’s already measles.

My grandson is 17 months old. He came down with a nasty cold. He started getting better, and then came down with a 103+ fever with extreme body pain, runny nose, and queasy stomach. He was diagnosed with measles.
