The most common way to treat German measles is by being treated at home. Your doctor will tell you to rest in bed and to take acetaminophen, or Tylenol, which can help relieve a fever and/or aches. They may also tell you that you should stay home from work or school to prevent spreading it to others.
In order to prevent getting German measles, getting a vaccination is a safe and effective way. The rubella vaccine is typically combined with vaccines for the measles and mumps as well as varicella, the virus that causes chicken pox.
