My DD will be 4 in September and on Tuesday she came down with a fever and on Wednesday morning woke up with a rash. Rash is spreading from upper arms to lower arms and hands, from upper legs to lower legs, from face to neck from upper back to lower back. Fever continues. SHe also has swollen lips, eyelids and cheeks and is congested. This really looks like measles. What do I do to help her feel better and make sure that she doesn't have any complications?
Vitamin A is very helpful for measles. I have this at home. http://www.klaire.com/prod/proddetail.asp?id=V060-01 If you can afford it, I recommend next day shipping because if it is measles, it would be good to start right away.
I have FCLO which has vit A in it. She takes it everyday. Should I just give her a bigger dose?
If you give her CLO every day, I doubt she is severely deficient in vitamin A, so I think she would be at a low risk of complications. However, CLO is not appropriate for large dosing of vitamin A because of the vitamin D content, and also it would just be gross to give that much oil. You can Google the dosage of vitamin A that is recommended for measles. It is pretty high.
