Rubella is a viral illness with noticeable splotchy skin rash, light fever, and swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat. It is usually a mild condition that gets better in 7 to 10 days without treatment. A vaccination against rubella is available.
Rubella is a viral infection that is very contagious and it is characterized by a red rash. The disease is also known as three-day measles or German measles. However, rubella is different from rubeola or measles, even if some characteristics such as the red rash are similar for the two diseases. Still, rubella is triggered by another virus and it is not severe or infectious, unlike measles.
The patient usually shows signs of a fever follow by a splotchy skin rash that usually lasts 3 days and begins behind the ears. Additionally, swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat occurs. Rubella can be very dangerous for those who are pregnant. Pregnant women should have extra care to prevent contact with affected people, rubella can seriously harm the embryo. It’s important, before becoming pregnant, to check the vaccination status.
There is no actual treatment for rubella, but a vaccine has been developed to protect from the disease. There are two required vaccinations: the first is given at 12 months of age and the second between the 15th and 24th months. It’s a combination of vaccines that covers measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).
