Were you looking for information about Measles? Measlas is a common misspelling of measles.
Measles is a highly contagious illness that is now rare in the United States due to widespread vaccination. It is caused by a virus and spread through coughing and sneezing. When a person becomes infected with measles virus, it begins to multiply within the cells that line the back of the throat and the lungs, causing symptoms 8 to 12 days later such as tiredness, high fever, and irritability. Treatment focuses on providing relief of symptoms as the body fights the virus.
