My Son caught measles from his creche by the way he is 11 months 2 weeks old now and it only came out some days ago after he had experienced very high temperatures for 3 days running.Though the break out is of the mild type. He was immunized against it but because a baby in his creche had it and was still coming to school,guess that where he picked the measles from.
Currently we are treating with antibiotics and calamine lotion. I trust wMeasles, also known as 'rougeole' in French, is a disease caused by a virus, specifically a paramyxovirus of the genus Morbillivirus. 'German measles' is an unrelated condition caused by the rubella virus.
Measles is spread through respiration (contact with fluids from an infected person's nose and mouth, either directly or through aerosol transmission), and is highly contagious—90% of people without immunity sharing a house with an infected person will catch it. Airborne precautions should be taken for all suspected cases of measles. He will come out of it quickly,he manages to eat now so its improving.God will heal him I know. Parents make sure you immunize your babies as at when appropriate. It saves the babies life. Out of this experience I trust his immunity will improve. Have a blessed day!
I stumbled on Blogging in 2007 while idling away on the internet during my maternity leave.I live in Nigeria and we are not so technologically aware but I have a profound interest in writing so the foundation of having this blog was birthed.Hope you enjoy my outlet as a first time parent and also visit and share your view always on my articles.Happy Browsing!!
"I really enjoyed this blog which is nicely laid out & has a nice variety of topics and sound advice. It also has photo's throughout, which were nice to look at. I live in East Africa so found it interesting to read the blog of a fellow African living on the same Continent as me ! "
