Hematochezia, acute or subacute salvoitic eclampsia, symptoms of rubella. Is this correct?

I have just been given this answer by someone that told me they were a doctor when I asked them please give us the symptoms that present to determine rubella? DO NOT quote me on this, as it has been a while since I dabbled in this field, had any patient contact. That said, as regards the presentation of rubella in young adult males , I believe the classic exanthem is followed by hematochezia, and subsequently, acute on subacute salvoitic eclampsia . What is he saying?

Thanks for writing in.
It is extremely unlikely that hematochezia can occur as a result of rubella. Also, eclampsia is the occurrence of fits in the pregnant woman. It is theoretically impossible in males.
Since a long time, a large number of young adult males have been reporting rubella.
Although half the people with rubella do not have any symptoms, in the majority the symptoms include rash, low-grade fever, cough, and swollen glands behind the ears and in the neck. The rash generally appears first on the face and moves from head to foot. The rash usually lasts for 3 days.
hope this helps
let me know if I can address any more concerns
