Measles symptoms usually begin between 7 -14 days after exposure. Some cases can take up to 21 days. Symptoms of measles are fever, runny nose, red eyes which are sensitive to light and coughing. After those symptoms show, a rash appears on the face and will spread on the body.
Health officials are asking anyone who might develop symptoms of measles to call their doctor's office and not go in if you think you have measles to avoid spreding to others.
