Descriptions of Articles
- Measles Prognosis
As this eMedTV article explains, a person's measles prognosis is generally good. However, in developing countries, measles is the leading cause of blindness. This resource talks about complications as well as the prognosis for the disease.
- Measles Symptoms
High fever, hacking cough, swelling of the eyelids, and red, watery eyes are possible measles symptoms. This eMedTV segment describes common signs and symptoms, and gives statistics about the mortality rate and possible complications of this disease.
- Measles Transmission
The cough or sneeze of an infected person is the primary way in which measles is spread. This portion of the eMedTV archives discusses measles transmission, explains the incubation period, and gives statistics on who is most likely to develop measles.
- Measles Treatment
Because there is no treatment to kill the measles virus, treatment focuses on relieving symptoms. This eMedTV Web page describes the different aspects of supportive care, including pain medications and intravenous fluids.
