    loss of appetite is a symptom of measles and also the runny nose. watch for a rash within the next two days but if you have been exposed i probably wouldn't wait that long to seek medical attention. good luck

  • The symptoms of measles usually begin to develop about 7-11 days after the person first becomes infected. The first symptoms are normally similar to those of a bad cold:

    fever

    runny nose

    sore throat

    cough

    A few days later, a bright red, blotchy rash breaks out on the forehead, face and neck.

    Within a few days the rash spreads to the body, arms and legs, by which time the rash will begin to fade from the face.

    When the rash breaks out, you may also develop conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eye, or better known as 'pinkeye')

    Go see a doctor!! Hope this helps.
