Measles, mumps and rubella – can you identify them?

Being of more mature years, not only have I seen all of these conditions but, as I was a child long before the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine became available, I have had them all. I was lucky – I had them when young and have not had any sequelae from them except memories. Years later, the MMR vaccine came in, somewhat piecemeal. First the measles jab as a baby and then rubella at school. Later, the two were combined and mumps was added to form the MMR vaccine.
