There is no specific treatment or cure for measles. Children should stay at home and out of school until they are cleared to return by their health care professional.
Follow-up for Measles
Although complications are rare, a physician should be contacted if symptoms worsen or do not resolve, or if there is confusion or change in the level of consciousness. Shortness of breath, a cough that produces sputum, and/or chest pain may be symptoms of pneumonia.
