Description:This image depicts the chest of a child revealing the classic maculopapular red, patchy rash of rubella, otherwise known as German measles.
The rash of rubella is maculopapular and occurs 14 to 17 days after exposure. The rash usually occurs initially on the face and then progresses from head to foot. It lasts about 3 days and is occasionally pruritic. The rash is fainter than measles rash and does not coalesce. The rash is often more prominent after a hot shower or bath.
