It's my first day of measles, I have it on my face, neck and shoulders. I just experience fever last day and I am ok now. I don't take a bath cause I'm afraid it would trigger. Please help.Thanks!

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question. Some doctors feel that taking a bath while having measles is fine. You need to follow the instructions your doctor gave you and ask him any questions or concerns you might have. 

Here are some resources for you

Best of luck,
