I was meant to be taking my 2 boys to a fun day today with my mam sister and her baby. now the thing is my nephew has the measles his rash was fully out friday and we were around him friday as i diden't even know he had a rash so what i want to know is, is he still contagious. as the boys were really looking forward to the fun day.

Hi Happy Mummie. TBH i've no idea, but i'd be very wary. Are you VHI? You could ring the nurse line and they'll be able to let you know. SOmething as serious as MEasles, I'd check wtih a professional first. HTH

Hi, im no expert, but if your nephew already has a rash, the incubation period is over, so if your boys were around him on Friday chances are they my have caught it already unkess their vaccinated A person with measles is contagious from 1 to 2 days before symptoms start until about 4 days after the rash appears.
