Arlington Mono Treatment
Don’t Let Disease Spread in Your Community!
Infectious Mononucleosis, commonly known as mono, is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Mono is usually spread through saliva, which is why it has been nicknamed the “kissing disease.” However, coughing, sneezing, or sharing drinks and eating utensils are other ways the disease can spread.
Because of its contagious nature, mono needs to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
Symptoms of Mononucleosis
Symptoms of mono range from mild to quite severe. Many patients never have symptoms of mono, but those that do usually complain of severe fatigue, which can last up to several months.
Other symptoms include:
- Low energy levels
- Sore throat
- Body ache
- Lack of appetite
- Enlarged spleen
Most patients with mono will not suffer any serious complications. However, one of the most dangerous complications of mono is an enlarged spleen, or splenomegaly. Patients with splenomegaly have a risk of rupturing their spleen, which is a medical emergency.
How to Treat Mono
There are no specific treatments that directly combat mono. The primary goal of mono care is to diagnose the condition so that patients can take appropriate precautions to prevent the spread of the infection. With enough rest and healthy eating, mono should clear up on its own after a few weeks. However, there are treatments that can help patients manage the symptoms of mono.
