Supplements for measles

Supplements cannot get rid of measles. Supplements are only useful to prevent, or help your immune system to fight it.

Vitamin A

Children suffering from severe infections of measles have been found to have a low level of vitamin A, due most of the time to malnutrition or improper diet. As this vitamin is key in having a well-funcionning immune system, low level allows infection to spread much more quickly in the body, as the immune system is not able to react with enough efficiency.

As a general rule, recommended intake of vitamin A (as carotenoids) is 15,000 IU daily for adults and 5,000 IU of for children's. However, seeking medical advice is recommended before beginning supplements in this case.

Dosage

Vitamin A (as carotenoids): 15,000 UI per day (adults) / 5,000 UI per day (children)
