Why Measles Is So Contagious and How to Protect Yourself

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory virus. Once you’re infected, the germs live in your nose and throat mucus so when you cough or sneeze, you can pass it on to others.

A blotchy rash is the most well-known symptom of measles.

Typically, “it starts at the scalp and works its way down the body,” said Dr. Gina Posner, a pediatrician at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California.

Other measles symptoms include:

high fever
runny nose
cough
eye discharge
white spots inside the mouth
