August 3, 2008 4:50pm CST
i haven't been posting discussions or replies here in mylot since i have measles. i have rashes all over my body and it's kinda itchy. it's hard to sleep. plus i can't seem to eat anything. i want to eat egg or fish, but is it okay to eat them. i am a bit scared bec those foods might trigger more rashes or itchiness in my body. by the way, i don't have antihistamine. i hardly drink meds.

Have you gone to the doctor? If you're sure you have measles (have you been vaccinated?), you really need to get to the doctor, because measles can sometimes be very dangerous and even cause long term problems. It's very, very, very contagious so you should stay away from people -- even by air.
