“Measles, or rubeola, is a viral infection of the respiratory system. Measles is a very contagious disease that can spread through contact with infected mucus and saliva. An infected person can release the infection into the air when they cough or sneeze.
The measles virus can live on surfaces for several hours. As the infected particles enter the air and settle on surfaces, anyone within close proximity can become infected.” 
In the beginning stages the symptoms of measles have striking similarities to allergy and flu-like symptoms. It is important to watch for all symptoms and their progression time.
The first symptoms are sneezing, coughing, fever, runny nose, and inflammation of the eyes. The eyes may become red and sensitive to light. Within 24-48 hrs, small red spots with white centers appear on the inside of the cheeks. A rash appears in 3-5 days, later on the sides of the neck, forehead, and ears; then it spreads over 5-7 days to the rest of the body. As it spreads, the fever subsides.
