Watch out for Measles

Measles outbreaks in other countries are spreading to the U.S. Doctors at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there have been 89 reported cases of measles in the U.S. already this year. In a typical year, the U.S. will only see about 50 cases total. Doctors say measles is one of the most contagious vaccine preventable diseases. So if you haven't taken the time to get your kids vaccinated because you're too busy.. this may the time to do it!

So what are the symptoms of the measles?

Runny nose
Dry cough
Skin rash of large blotches
White spots in the mouth

Here's more on this story from FROM YAHOO NEWS:

I broke out in some sort of hives or rash or something today. Now I think I am paranoid it's the measles. Yikes! I mean I doubt it, but it is certainly coincidental that I ran into this story today!
