Rubella, also known as German measles, is a contagious viral infection characterized by a red rash. Rubella can be prevented through MMR vaccination of children. Signs and symptoms are very mild and can go unnoticed. Symptoms are:
• Mild fever
• Stuffy or runny nose
• Inflamed eyes
• Enlarged, tender lymph nodes
• A fine, pink rash that begins on the face and spreads to trunk, arms and legs
• Aching joints in women
HOW IS RUBELLA DIAGNOSED?
A blood test would help a general physician diagnose this disease. The test would help in distinguishing rubella form other viral rashes and measles.
HOW IS RUBELLA TREATED?
Rubella cannot be treated with antibiotics because they do not work against viral infections. Unless there are complications, rubella will get better on its own. Treatment of newborn babies is focused on management of the complications. Congenital heart defects and cataracts can be corrected by direct surgery.
