Monkeypox, a very rare and similar disease to smallpox, is mostly found in African areas, but recently it has been spreading all across the world.
Just like smallpox, monkeypox also causes high fever, chills and extreme rash all over the body. Unfortunately, for now, there is no such treatment that can cure monkeypox. The only option is to let them go away on their own.
Here Are The Common Symptoms You Should Look Out For!
- muscles ache
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Raised bumps type rashes appear on the skin within 1-3 days of the infection.
- Rashes start from the face and spreads to other parts of the body gradually.
Is this condition curable?
Unfortunately, there is no cure for monkeypox at the moment. According to medical specialists, antiviral medicines may help to decrease the intensity of the symptoms but can not cure them.
How long do the symptoms of monkeypox last?
The symptoms of this condition usually take approximately 2-4 weeks before settling down, but still the doctors recommend isolating for 21 days at least.
