What Does Monkeypox Look Like?

A uncommon viral illness called monkeypox mostly affects isolated regions of Central and West Africa. Monkeypox symptoms are comparable to smallpox symptoms but are less severe.

Fever, headache, muscle aches, backaches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and tiredness are some of the early signs of monkeypox. A rash appears within a few days, frequently starting on the face and moving down the body and limbs. The rash develops into pustules, which are elevated bumps packed with fluid that eventually scab and fall off.

Given that the pustules of monkeypox are typically larger than those of chickenpox and frequently form concentric circles on the skin, the rash can be fairly recognizable. Antihistamines can help with the itching, which can be extremely uncomfortable when the rash is present. In severe situations, monkeypox can result in problems like pneumonia, encephalitis (brain inflammation), and sepsis (a bacterial infection that may be fatal).

It’s critical to get medical assistance as soon as possible if you believe that you or someone you know could have monkeypox.
