Have you had the usual childhood vaccinations or ever had measles before?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes and no I have not had measles.
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 6 years ago.
OK. Despite the fact that you've been vaccinated, this still could be measles. Viral exanthems are another possibility--cause by a variety of viruses like enterovirus, coxsackie virus, EB virus, herpes, flue, etc. Other infectious possibilities include Rocky Mountain Spotted fever, syphilis, gonorrhea, meningitis (but you would probably be sicker with these). For all these reasons, it'd be best to have a doctor look at you.
