German Measles

We just got home from the hospital, may mga butlig-butlig kasi si Ykaie.I thought na effect lang yun nung measles vaccine nya last August 8 but it turned out na German Measles pala.(Vaccine for GM is given to children 1 yr and above).
According to my research:
"Rubella — commonly known as German measles or 3-day measles — is an infection that primarily affects the skin and lymph nodes. It is caused by the rubella virus (not the same virus that causes measles), which is usually transmitted by droplets from the nose or throat that others breathe in. It can also pass through a pregnant woman's bloodstream to infect her unborn child. As this is a generally mild disease in children, the primary medical danger of rubella is the infection of pregnant women, which may cause congenital rubella syndrome in developing babies."
"Rubella cannot be treated with antibiotics because antibiotics do not work against viral infections. Unless there are complications, rubella will resolve on its own."
Yun din naman ang sabi ng pediatrician.Mawawala lang daw ng kusa within 3-5 days.Nakakapag-alala lang, kasi naman ang pangalan ay GERMAN MEASLES.Parang nakakatakot pakinggan.Parang ang lala-lala ng sakit. Wawa pa naman si Ykaie pag may sakit.
Naku,di lang halata pero maraming butlig si Ykaie sa mukha.Just click on the picture para makita nyo..
