Measles in the United States – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Health experts are concerned about a spike in cases of measles. Dr. Anthony Fauci at the NIH explains the signs and symptoms of measles.
Fauci: It starts off with … a significant fever and then …even within a day or so of the fever, you wind up getting a running nose, you cough, you sneeze, and you get what’s called conjunctivitis or inflammation or red eye as it were. Then, after a period of a couple of days, you develop a rash, which starts off on the face and the neck and then goes to the trunk and to the extremities.
Narrator: For details, visit www.cdc.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
