The First signs of measles see the appearance of small white spots on the inside cheeks of the mouth. These spots are around 1-2 mm wide (Koplik’s spots)
The measles rash starts after these spots disappear. The rash consists of separate pink/red lesions that start to join as the rash spreads. The spots are flat red areas to begin with, but then become raised
The red rash develops on the face and progresses to develop down the body on the legs and the arms.
