Yesterday our 13 month old DS came home from daycare (5pm) with a rash mostly on his belly. By bath time (7pm) it had spread to most of his body (back, legs and arms) so when he finally fell asleep I did some googling and it resembles German measles. I was under the impression that it is pretty rare though.
This morning it has spread to his cheeks and his cheeks were quite inflamed. He has had a cold for about a week and his cough over the last 3ish days has been pretty nasty. Today we took him to the doc and she said looks like measles and sent us to the children's hospital for bloods.
I should probably mention that 2 weeks ago he had his MMR vaccine.
Has anyone had a kid with measles? What has your experience been?
