Rubella (German Measles) Diagnosis and Treatment
How is rubella diagnosed?
If a health care provider suspects rubella, samples of mucus from the nose and throat, blood, urine and/or cerebrospinal fluid will be examined, and the health care provider will observe for symptoms.
What is the treatment for rubella?
There is no cure for rubella, only supportive treatment (bed rest, fluids and fever reduction). Most patients will recover on their own.
