You need to see a doctor as soon as possible. You doctor will diagnose measles based on the symptoms. A blood test is also needed if necessary.

If your doctor confirms that you've got a measles infection, you'll need over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Children's Motrin, others) or naproxen (Aleve) to relieve the fever. Antibiotics and vitamin are needed when necessary.

Home remedies for measles include rest, drinking plenty of water, and use of a humidifier to ease the cough and sore throat. You also need to keep in touch with your doctor and watch for complications.
