    Rubella is a common viral infection that is best recognised by its characteristic red rash. German measles and three-day measles are other names for Rubella. Most people may only experience minor symptoms from this virus. However, if a mother has the infection while pregnant, it can significantly harm the unborn child.

    When an infected individual coughs or sneezes, it may spread. Additionally, it can be transferred by close contact with contaminated nasal and throat mucus. Rubella virus can also travel through the bloodstream from pregnant mothers to their unborn offspring.

    An individual who has been exposed to the Rubella virus is infectious for around a week before the allergic reaction appears and for another week after the rash has subsided. Before becoming aware of their infection, an infected individual can transmit the disease.

    The symptoms and indicators of the Rubella virus might be hard to spot, especially in youngsters. Signs and symptoms typically manifest two to four weeks after virus exposure. They typically last between one and five days and can include:

    • Slight fever 
    • Runny or stuffy nose  
    • Itching, red eyes
    • Painful lymph nodes around the base of the head, in the neck's back, and behind the ears 
    • A light, pink rash that appears first on the face, spreads rapidly to the trunk, then the hands and legs, and finally vanishes in the same order 
    • Achy joints, particularly in young women

    The body produces anti-virus antibodies following a Rubella infection. These are proteins that help combat bacteria, viruses, and illnesses. Various assays can be used to check for antibodies to the virus or viral genetic material. A Rubella PCR test looks for signs of exposure to the Rubella virus. To assist in the diagnosis of a recent or active Rubella virus infection, a Rubella PCR test quantifies the number of antibodies present in a blood sample.

    Checking for prior Rubella vaccinations also involves undertaking this kind of testing on individuals. A Rubella PCR test measures the number of antibodies to the Rubella virus that may suggest a recent or active infection or a previous immunisation.

    The Rubella PCR test from Apollo 24|7 can be leveraged to identify recent or past virus infection cases. Testing may also be used to confirm a history of Rubella vaccination. It can be done using a swab from the nose or throat, blood sample, urine, or both. Individuals with complaints that are indicative of Rubella can be diagnosed or ruled out for this disorder with a Rubella PCR test.

    Frequently asked questions

    A Rubella test looks for antibodies the body produces to fight the Rubella virus. For years, these antibodies stay in the bloodstream. Specific antibodies indicate a current infection, a previous infectious disease, or that you have received a vaccination against the illness.
    When a pregnant woman contracts the Rubella virus, she runs the danger of stillbirth or miscarriage. The unborn child is also prone to severe birth abnormalities that might have catastrophic, lifelong repercussions. The Rubella virus can impact almost every system in a baby's developing body. The most typical birth abnormality caused by it can be deafness.
    Before getting pregnant, it's crucial to receive a Rubella vaccination to lower the risk of contracting the illness, which can cause Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS) in the unborn child. CRS can bring on neurodevelopment issues and severe birth abnormalities.
    Immunity results from the body developing a resistance against the Rubella virus. However, the effects of immunisation may wane in some adults. This indicates that they are not entirely safe. Adults and women who might get pregnant can both get a booster shot.
    Although no test is perfect, the findings of Rubella tests are typically regarded as accurate. The testing schedule may impact the reliability of your testing results. When fever or a rash that signals Rubella virus infection first appears, the Rubella PCR test recommended for diagnosis must be carried out within a specific window.
    If any pregnant person contracts the Rubella virus while carrying the child, the fetus could also contract the illness. Testing is done soon after birth and up until the age of one to verify a Rubella diagnosis in a newborn.
