Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox is similar to smallpox, but milder. Symptoms of monkeypox include flu-like symptoms and a painful rash consisting of pimples or blisters that can appear on the face, inside the mouth, and on other parts of the body. Monkeypox is spread through close, sustained physical contact with the infectious rashes, scabs, or body fluids of a person who has monkeypox. It can also be spread through respiratory droplets during prolonged face to face contact between people.
If caring for someone with monkeypox, it is important to follow all local and national guidelines, some of which include wearing PPE and avoiding direct contact with the rash. Healthcare workers who have cared for someone with monkeypox should notify the health department and be monitored closely for developing symptoms.
