Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Let her have lot of fluids like water, lemon juice and other fruit juices. Has a test been done to confirm measles. Usually measles provides life long immunity. You can consult with an infectious disease specialist to confirm that it is not other viral illness. Anyways in most viral illnesses it is only supportive therapy. Rest and fluids. If she develops any bleeding spots under the skin, she must be taken to the Doctor.

Dear Dr. Aashish,
My mom is given lots of juices and diluted milk, thanks to you. She is not weak but has body pains. Her fever stays at 102F most of the time. The fever reduces to 100F~101F when paracetamol is given.
Do her Blood/Urine tests prove positive for measles?

Thank you,
