Were you looking for information about Measles? Meisels is a common misspelling of measles.
Measles is an infectious viral illness that is spread by sneezing and coughing. When a person becomes infected with the virus, it begins to multiply within the cells that line the back of the throat and the lungs. Symptoms, which may include a red or pink eye, tiredness, and swelling of the eyelids, usually begin to develop 8 to 12 days after the initial infection. The best prevention of measles is the vaccine.
