In the last few weeks there’s been an increase in the number of measles cases in England. Measles spreads very easily and can cause serious illnesses including pneumonia and meningitis.
Look out for symptoms of measles in your child, which include:
- a high temperature;
- a runny or blocked nose, sneezing or a cough;
- red, sore, watery eyes;
- a rash with spots of the measles sometimes raised and join together to form blotchy patches; and / or
- white spots in the mouth.
