 Homeopathy: German Measles (Rubella) 

Children with German measles should stay at home until they are well, both for their own health and because of the serious consequences of infecting pregnant women with this virus.

Aconitum: This remedy is for sudden onset of a rash with a fever. The children are usually very thirsty. Aconitum is only appropriate during the initial stages of this illness.

Belladonna: When children experience a sudden onset of high fever with a flushed face and reddened lips, this remedy is the first to consider. These children also tend to have a hot head and cold extremities. Their skin is usually so hot that it radiates heat (you can feel it by placing your hand a couple of inches away from the skin). This fever is a dry heat, without perspiration. These children tend to have a strong and bounding pulse. At night the temperature gets highest, causing the child to be agitated, sometimes delirious, perhaps leading them to see hallucinations when their eyes are closed.

Pulsatilla: These children experience chill with their fever. They feel worse in warm rooms and by warmth. They desire open air but need to be properly covered. They are thirstless and have a flushed red face.
