01 In Brief

Otherwise known as baby measles, this common infection causes a typical illness between the ages of 6 to 15 months of age. It ranges from mild symptoms to a  full blown illness with marked fever and a characteristic rash. Once the rash appears, everyone can relax as the fever usually resolves. It is due to human herpes virus 6 and occasionally HHV7.
