i would just like to find out if anyone thinks this might be measles, my daughter had a temp for 3 days last week (wed,thur,frid) on friday night i took her to doctor as her temp was 39 degrees, he said it was from teething. However yesterday morning, she woke up with a rash on her forehead nad behind ears nad neck, i though it might of been a heat rash so kept her cool, it then spread to her tummy and back. Could this be measles. ????

You do not say how old your child is. If your child has been immunised against measles it is unlikely that she will get measles. This may be roseola or 'baby measles'. The rash lasts day or two and then clears up.
