BOY had Measles

Picture of BOY's thigh and abdomen at 5.11 pm

I haven't had enough time to write  for the past 2-3 days...was busy with SCHOOL works, meetings, new Form 4 orientation week + homeroom meetings and unfortunately my BOY fall sick. Poor BOY...his body temperature was really high for about 2 nights....mmg penat sangat when your child is sick. [ but the mother's feeling is totally different from the father,  i bet you!! ]

After the 2 days high temperature 'drama scene' , now my hyperactive boy had measles start on his abdomen....and i've surf for some information on measles through the net:

Measles is caused by a type of virus called a paramyxovirus. When someone who has the virus sneezes or coughs, tiny droplets containing the virus spray into the air. The droplets stay active for two hours in the air or on a surface. A baby who breathes in these droplets or comes in contact with them can become infected.

If your baby has measles, he'll start out with a fever, an extremely runny nose, a cough, and red, runny eyes.

A few days later, he may develop characteristic spots in his mouth, particularly on the mucous membranes that line his cheeks. These spots, called Koplik's spots, appear as tiny white dots — like grains of salt or sand — on reddish bumps.

A couple of days later, a measles rash will appear on your child's face and neck, progress down his back and trunk, then to his arms and hands, and finally to his legs and feet.

So, this is the 2nd day BOY had measles. Probably the rashes will decreases tomorrow or may be the day after...Hope that BOY will recover sooner and gain his on he only drinks milk and have totally no appetite on other food....obviously his losing weight...anak tembam IBU dah x tembam lagi...
