Had measles when I was 3... no recollection of pain associated with the rash. I had Rubella when I was 9(ish) and remember it well. Didn't feel ill, didn't itch... just covered in this pinprick rash!! I got a week off school and felt fine.
Ds2 is covered in a pin prick rash, has had runny nose and red eyes - exactly same syptoms as S1 had 3 weeks earlier but much milder that I put down to non specific viral rash. Friend mentioned rubella or measles although they have had sepvax but no boosters yet. Ds2's rash seems a bit sore in places today (around genitals)
thanks - is the rash all over? Ds 2 is covered and has been for about 2/3 days now. I only suddenly thought about rubella or measles after my friend mentioned it and i realised the incubation was 14-21 days which tallys up with when ds 1 had it iyswim
