Measles - How They Affect You? + Treatment

Measles or rubeola as it is also known is one of the leading causes of children’s death around the world. This viral infection is communicable through the air and spreads through contact with infected saliva and mucus. Thus, sharing cutlery or glassware with an infected person can increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease. Thankfully measles can be prevented through vaccination known as MMR. This vaccination is given to infants and also protects them against mumps, rubella and chickenpox. The first dose of MMR vaccination is given when the child is about 1 year old and a booster dose is repeated when the child is 4-6 years old.

One of the most characteristic symptoms of measles is a reddish rash that begins inside the mouth and later erupts all over the body. This is usually preceded by a high fever, cold, cough, sore throat and swelling of the lymph nodes. Fatigue, diarrhoea and redness of the eyes are other symptoms of this disease. Measles symptoms are not apparent the moment a person is exposed to the virus. It can take 7 to 18 days for symptoms to become visible after catching the infection, this is known as the incubation period. Measles affects adults is a more severe way than children.

Children and adults with a weak immune system are highly susceptible to complications associated with measles. In some cases, it can lead to life threatening conditions, such as pneumonia and encephalitis or inflammation of the brain. Other complications associated with measles include ear infections, bronchitis, blindness and a sharp fall in platelet count. A pregnant woman suffering from measles also has a high risk of miscarrying the baby or preterm labour.

There is no definitive form of treating measles and doctors typically address the symptoms while prescribing medication. In most cases, the symptoms and the virus should disappear in two to three weeks. Some of the common forms of medicine prescribed to deal with measles are:

  1. Medication to relieve fever
  2. Antibiotics to prevent or treat accompanying bacterial infections
  3. Vitamin A supplements to reduce the severity of measles symptoms
  4. Pain relievers to deal with muscle pains

In addition, the patient needs plenty of rest and fluids to strengthen the immune system. The use of a humidifier can also help treat a sore throat and cough. Bright lights can aggravate headaches and irritation and hence should be avoided. Hence, avoid watching television and activities like reading. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Dietary Guidelines to include a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, protein foods and dairy products. When there is healthy food in the body, it is more difficult for lead to be absorbed. Make sure your diet is rich in important nutrients such as calcium, iron and vitamin C.

If you are interested to give top milk, start with dairy milk n continue breastfeeding. Weaning time is also near by. Boiling is not related to time but to well boiling.

What is the treatment for a child of 18 Months who is having cystic hygroma on left neck. please reply soon.
Cystic hygroma can be treated very effectively with Homeopathy. Was it present since birth? A very common suggestion is get it operated. But if you treat it with homeopathy and have some patience and use homeopathy, it will be gone in a few months and homeopathy will improve the immunity also.

Hi, I think he is having normal weight to his age, a 18 month infant should weigh 3-4 times to his birth weight. Let him know different tastes and try to identify his cravings and aversions in food and feed him accordingly.

Hello firstly I want to knw if there any tendency to catch cold easily or recurrent cold n cough. You should avoid cold things like rice, curd, banana, etc. Take lukewarm water specilly in morning. Do some yoga like kapalbhati nd anlom vilom. Homoeopathic medicine had gud results in it. Consult back for medication.

Occasionally 2-3 time small bouts of coughing in a day or coughing after feeding is normal. It may be because to irritation due to some milk or normal secretion in thraot. Its a normal reflex coughing. Continus large bouts of coughing with cold or fever or other symptom you should give prescribed medicine or consult pediatrician.

She has problem of bed wetting at age of 11 1/2 years .she is premature baby with 1400 gm weight and operated for reverse reflux of kidney at age of 7 years .Is any treatment available for bed wetting?

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician,
Yes there are some medication for bedwetting. But I would concern about her problem want to ask if she started bedwetting at 11.5 years or having since before? Medication for bedwetting is available but before starting you must find cause for bedwetting and councils her for dry night (toilet training) with medication. Medication may be beneficial in this case but some times symptoms may recure after stopping the drugs if primary cause of bedwetting is not solved. In adolescent girl having started bedwetting at 11 years there may be some disease like Urinary tract infection or other and also role out some social or personal (psychological) problem like anxiety, depression or problem in school and other. Consult paediatrician for detail examination and management.

If baby is breast fed only or getting some cow's milk or formula milk or calcium syrup. You should withhold everything except breast feed. Secondly if stools are not hard, then it's ok with once a week frequency for stools, if baby is breast fed only.
