Were you looking for information about Measles? Measeles is a common misspelling of measles.
Although measles is rare in the United States, it is still a common illness worldwide. The illness is highly contagious and can be spread through sneezing and coughing. About 14 days after exposure to the virus, the measles rash (a red, blotchy rash) usually appears and lasts 5 to 6 days. Several days before the rash begins, symptoms such as hacking cough, tiredness, and runny nose may also occur. The best prevention of measles is the vaccine.
