Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

It is very difficult to confirm if it is measles without evaluation of the rash.

It can also be a viral rash.

I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

I also suggest using Calamine lotion for local application at the rash area.

I recommend to drink liquids and eat healthy.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
