It's all over the news. Cases are rising. Everyone is scared about monkeypox. It's understandable - it is a serious disease that can be fatal in some cases. However, it is important to remember that monkeypox is a rare disease and there is no need to panic. There have only been a handful of cases in the United States in the past 20 years.
HOW TO AVOID MONKEYPOX
Monkeypox is a rare viral infection that is similar to human smallpox. The monkeypox virus is found in several African countries and can infect humans and animals. The virus is spread through contact with the skin or fluids of an infected animal, or through contact with an infected person. The incubation period for monkeypox is usually 7-14 days, but can be up to 21 days. An incubation time is the time that is required for an infection to grow to a detectable level, producing symptoms. It is important because it determines how long a person is infectious before they know it, and how many people will become infected.

Symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and a rash. The rash starts as small red bumps that turn into large blisters and eventually scab over. Monkeypox is a serious illness, but most people recover.
Can Monkeypox be Treated?
There is no specific treatment for monkeypox, but the symptoms can be treated. Treatment may include taking antibiotics to prevent secondary bacterial infections, taking antipyretics to reduce fever, and giving supportive care to relieve symptoms.
The monkeypox vaccine is approved for people aged 18 years and older. It is a good way to prevent getting an infection.
Although there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that monkeypox disproportionately affects gay men, we still need more information on this topic. Monkeypox is a viral disease that is found in monkeys and humans. The disease is typically spread to humans through contact with infected animals, such as monkeys, apes, and squirrels. This means all humans are susceptible, though we don't know the exact risk factors yet.
