MEASLES 2
 
 
The disease has an incubation period of about fourteen days and it is therefore not surprising that within another ten or twelve days the next case will break out, either in your family or your neighbour's.
The first symptoms of measles can vary, but might include a head cold, nose bleeding, bronchial catarrh and conjunctivitis (with sensitivity to light, burning of the eyes and lacrimation).
Soon the child's temperature will rise to perhaps 39 C (102 F). It will then drop, but on the fourth day may rise again as high as 40 C (104 F). It usually goes down again as soon as the rash appears, but if it remains high for more than 3?4 days after its first outbreak, complications are likely to set in and more specific treatment must be given. You should immediately give the child Lacbesis I Ox to prevent the development of sepsis and apply flannels wrung out in a hot infusion of herbs (for example wild thyme) repeatedly to the affected areas. This will draw out the internal toxins through the skin. Even when the disease takes its normal course, it is advisable to apply these hot packs to bring the rash out properly. During the fever, give the child nothing but fruit juices, particularly orange and grape juice or carrot juice, the latter also being very good for the liver. If you have no juices available, give the child a mild herbal tea sweetened with honey. In addition, like all infectious diseases, a case of measles demands careful oral hygiene. For infants and smaller children, wrap a clean cloth around your finger tip, dip it in diluted whey concentrate and rub the gums, the inner cheeks and the tongue (which always become furred with measles). For older children use a soft toothbrush to disinfect the mouth.
