In Conditions and Diseases
Unless you have a very low immune system, there is no significant statistic associated with Mono. Mono, though, is contagious, so if you think you have it, do not swipe bodily… fluids with anybody, especially not saliva. No sharing drinks, no kissing, no sharing cigarettes, etc. Mono is not fun, and it lasts 3 weeks or more, so while it may make you feel like you're dying, you're probably not. There is no fast cure for mono. There are no medications specifically designed to treat mono, and you should consult a doctor for anything other than Tylenol for fever and pain relief.
In Alternative Treatments for Conditions or Diseases
