Measles is a viral disease usually occurring in children. It is considered one of the most contagious of all infections. One attack usually gives immunity for life.


It is caused by a virus which is spread through the air by coughing and sneezing. People can spread the infection to others as early as a day after making contact with the disease and remain infectious for about a week after the symptoms first appear.

Signs & Symptoms

Symptoms appear 7 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. These usually start with a fever, running nose, sore eyes and a feeling of weakness.

A cough and sore throat soon follow. After a few days, a rash with small rounded spots appears on the sides of the face and the neck, and gradually spreads throughout the body surfaces. With time these spots turn darker from pink colour.

Herbal Medicines

Turmeric, neem, lemon, and tulsi are the well­known remedies for measles.

  1. These can be used internally as well as externally on the rashes.
  2. A combination of pure turmeric powder 2 gms well mixed in 20ml of fresh juice of tulsi leaves, consumed twice a day till the symptoms are cleared, is a valuable remedy.
  3. Fresh neem leaves well pounded with some turmeric and sandalwood can be used as external paste.
  4. If there is persistent cough, tulsi juice well mixed with honey can be given repeatedly.

Ayurvedic Remedies

  1. Liquorice powder 2gms along with 10ml of honey is also a good home remedy to relieve sore throat and cough in measles.
  2. Brihat Haridra Khanda granules should be taken in a dosage of 5gm well mixed in a cup of lukewarm water twice a day.
