Were you looking for information about Rubella? Rebela is a common misspelling of rubella.
Rubella is an illness that is caused by an infection with a specific virus. It typically lasts for about three days and may cause joint pain and swelling, fever, headache, and a rash. Although rubella is typically mild, when it occurs in pregnant women, it can pose a serious threat to the developing fetus. Since there is currently no treatment that can kill the virus, treatment focuses on providing relief of symptoms as the body fights the infection.
