Advice to Parents on Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerhood Measles Part I

Measles is on the increase due to a reluctance by parents to allow their Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren to have the MMR vaccine. The early stages are similar to many other diseases, yet measles kills Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren. Part I of this article explains why measles parties are not a good idea, and why measles is a dangerous infection.

Measles is caused by a virus of the influenza family. The initial measles symptoms are a bit like a bad cold or flu, but with a rash! The vast majority of parents do not know what measles really is, other than being a Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerhood illness. They know it has a rash and is infectious, but that’s about it. They have probably never seen it and don’t know anyone who has had it. Most doctors would not recognise measles symptoms until the rash appeared, never having come across it. This is due to the measles vaccination program which was superseded by the MMR vaccine.

I have even heard of parents arranging measles parties, where young Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren are sent to visit others who have measles in order that they catch it. This is going back to the immediate post World War 2 era when immunity was gained by catching the disease. I was brought up in the 1950s and early 1960s and remember mumps parties and German measles parties so that Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren would be immune to these diseases as adults, but not measles parties.

The reason for this is that mumps can damage the male reproductive system ( and, not so well known, the ovaries as well) if contracted after puberty, and German measles is very dangerous to the developing fetus. In Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren, however, they are relatively mild diseases. Painful and uncomfortable, perhaps, but not what you would call killer diseases. German measles is not a type of measles. The word ‘German’ probably comes from a Latin word, germanus, meaning ‘similar’ since the symptoms are similar to those of measles.

Measles kill, so we never had measles parties. In fact back in the 1940s and 1950s it was a major killer. In England alone 5,677 Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren died in the 1940s. Nobody wanted their kids to catch measles back in these days. I have read that measles parties were common then, but I never came across one. We were always told to keep away from anyone who had measles – at least until they went back to school. Some never went back.

Since the measles vaccine, which became available in 1963, and MMR which was licensed in the USA in 1971 (1972 in the UK), the disease has become uncommon in developed countries, and parents have become blasé about it. This is the only reason I can think of for them concluding that measles parties are better for their Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren than the vaccine. If it does not kill, it can have some very nasty side effects. It is without a doubt the most dangerous Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren’s rash-producing disease.

Measles is still one of the major causes of death in Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren worldwide (over 600,000 have been reported) and it is almost as contagious as smallpox. Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren have around a 99% chance of contracting the disease if they come into contacted with an infected person. The main cause of death in around 60% of measles cases is pneumonia.

If it does not kill your Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren they have a high chance of hearing problems, and worse, a much higher than average chance of contracting meningitis or encephalitis. The chances of this are only 1 in a 1000, but you don’t want your son or daughter to be that one. I know, because my son was that one. He contracted meningitis and encaphilitis shortly after receiving a measles vaccination, but I still prompted my daughter to allow her son to have the MMR vaccine. The disease is far more dangerous than the vaccine. He had it and all was well. My son's story is on my website.

In part two of this article, I will explain the symptoms and in what order they can be expected, to help parents who are unsure what they should do or when to call a doctor.

 

Advice to Parents on Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerhood Measles - Part II

In part II of this article measles symptoms are described in the order in which they would be expected to appear, and advice given on when to call a doctor.

In Part 1 I explained how a lack of knowledge about measles symptoms and resistance to MMR has resulted in some parents starting up ‘measles parties’ to ensure that their Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren caught measles early and so gain immunity that way. This is mistaken in my view and many people are unaware that measles is still a major killer. In part II I will explain to parents what the measles symptoms are, in what order they should appear and when to call a doctor.

As a parent you should learn how to recognise measles symptoms. If your Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager has had the disease, or is immunized, you probably don’t need to know this, but if not you could save a life by being aware of the most important measles symptoms and when to get medical help. Back in the 1950s and 60s they all knew measles symptoms when they saw the, but not now, so let’s try to spot the them in the rough order in which they normally appear. It’s not easy since many Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerhood infections have similar symptoms. However, they all have at least one which is particular to that disease.

Measles symptoms:

Measles frequently start with symptoms similar to those of a cold or the flu.

1. First a runny nose and a ‘sniffle’, followed by a sore throat.. A typical ‘barking’ cough can then develop. So far, you would not think ‘measles’ The eyes will puff up, may become watery and get red and sore looking. If you know of a possible measles contact you can now get suspicious.

2. A slight increase in temperature will develop, and will increase to around 39 Celsius (102F). The Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager may shy away from the light or close her eyes when a light is switched on. At this point you may want to call a doctor. If so, you will catch the disease early, but the symptoms are not yet definitely indicative of measles. Most parents will still regard these symptoms as a’ bit of a cold’ or a ‘touch of the flu’.

3. You may not notice this, but about 2 to 3 days after the first symptoms appear, your Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager will get small spots on the inside of the cheek, round about the molars, called Koplik’s Spots. These look like small red bumps with tiny grains of sand or salt in the middle. These may last less than a day and sometimes even appear within the first 36 hours. If you are with it and aware, you will see this, and you should call your doctor at this stage. This the definitive measles symptom. No other infection shows Koplik's spots. These spots disappear as the main rash appears. They are photographed on my website.

5. The temperature will probably have reduced a bit by now to 37 – 38C (just at or below 100F). You think perhaps she is getting better.

6. The main rash starts to appear about 1 or 2 days after the Koplik’s spots. It forms small spots which join together to form blotches. Definitely doctor time! There is a picture of a measles rash on my website.

7. The rash appears on the forehead around the hairline first, then to the neck, body, arms and legs. By this time you will have called a doctor and your Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager is diagnosed with measles unless you have an inexperienced doctor, when samples may be taken to identify the virus.

8. The temperature increases again to over 40C or higher (105F). No need for samples now - if the Koplik's spots were missed, this is definitely measles, but by now it is dying out.

9. The rash lasts about 4 days then starts to disappear from the head down. The whole process, from start of symptoms to disappearance of the rash, takes about 10 days on average. The rash itself last about 6 days.

A person with measles is infectious from 4 days before the rash appears to about 4 days after it has appeared, so it can be passed around before any measles symptoms show.

Those most at risk are:

Young Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren under one year old. Malnourished people. Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren who have depressed immune systems, such as those on some cancer treatments or are infected with HIV or AIDS. Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenagerren suffering from a Vitamin A deficiency. Pregnant women: the infection can cause miscarriage or premature delivery.

It is said that a doctor’s surgery can be a dangerous place. Measles is extremely contagious, and around 90% of close proximity contacts will catch the disease. If any of the above high risk patients are present in the surgery waiting room when you take your Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager suspected of having measles, you may be placing them at special risk.

Doctors may not like this, but for this reason alone I suggest that you call a doctor rather than take a Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager suspected of having measles to the surgery. This is another argument against those who would rather have their Child, Juvenile, Kiddic, Minor & Teenager catch measles at a measles party than be given a vaccination to prevent them from contracting it.
