Q.

German measles

hi doc, my son's got german measles. Should i be concerned with my daughter contracting it, ( she has been immunized,) how else could he have gotten it as he doesnt come into contact with other kid often. and is always at home.

I wonder if the diagnosis is correct and this is not a condition called Roseola which is a viral infection affecting infants and young children and which is also called 'baby measles'. In any case if it is German measles, your daughter has been immunised against it and will not get the illness.
