I am 67 now. I was 9 or 10 when I had the 10 day measles. My grandmother came to help take care of me. I had rash from head to legs. Calamine lotion reduced itching. Fever of 105 was reduced with what seemed to be cold baths. When we had the vision test at school, I was near-sighted, diagnosed due to measles. I was allowed to sit in the living room near a big picture window in the summer sun. Supposedly that made the measles hard on my eyes. I still wear glasses.
