Caption: Koplik's spots in the mouth of a child suffering from measles. These red spots with white centres are a frequent symptom in this highly infectious viral disease that mainly affects children. Symptoms of cold and fever develop after an incubation period of 8-15 days. On the 3rd to 5th day the characteristic blotchy rash develops & persists for 3 to 5 days. The patient remains infectious throughout this period. In most cases the symptoms subside, but the infant may be susceptible to pneumonia and infections of the middle ear. Complete recovery may take 2-4 weeks. Vaccination provides effective immunity against the disease.
