Measles in Babies

Hi

Can you please tell me what causes Measles and how do you treat a baby with measles. Can it have negative effects on her?

Thanks

Infants are immunised against measles so they no longer develop measles. If you are talking about Roseola which is often called baby measles there is no specific treatment other than using Panado for any fever and seeing that your baby takes her feeds especially the fluids she needs.
