Late 1960s photograph shows a Nigerian mother and her child who was recovering from measles; note that the skin is sloughing on the child as he heals from his measles infection.
This child was among many who were cared for in camps set up during the CDC-led refugee relief effort during the Nigerian-Biafran war. Measles was a constant threat in these camps. Sloughing of the skin in recovering measles patients was often extensive, and resembles that of a burn victim. Due to their weakened state, children like the one shown here, need nursing care to avoid subsequent infections.
