Measle again in adult who had it as a kid?

A co-worker's husband has a rash on his chest. Someone suggested it could be measles because he went to Peru, worked with children, and now has this rash. He was born in 1955, and had measles as a kid.

What is the probability that he got it again?

Re: Measle again in adult who had it as a kid?

There are many reasons for a rash. Does he have a fever? There are also two types of measles, regular (rubeola) measles and German measles (rubella). He could have had one but not the other. It would be best to have it checked at a clinic.
