Q.

Measles in toddlers

Good Day, My baby of 19 months has measles (baby measles according to the sister I took him to) How long should he stay away from other children?He is on Augmentin, Ponstel and Panado at the moment. What else can I do to help calm him as he is quite irritable as well?

Thank you for your assistance

Babies are normally only ill for 3 days once the rash appears in Roseola (baby measles) Only use Panado or Calpol if your baby is unhappy or still has a fever.
