Monkeypox is a skin infection caused by the monkeypox virus. The virus is zoonotic, which means it can be transmitted to humans from animals as well as from infected human beings.
The main signs of monkeypox disease are the skin rash, accompanied by some or all of the following: Headache, fever, backache, muscle pain, energy loss and fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes.
Most symptoms of the virus usually last 14 – 21 days. Even though the virus will leave the infected body on its own, sometimes supportive medical care may be needed if symptoms are severe. The rash turns into pus-filled lesions which ultimately crust over, scab and fall; replaced by new skin cells.
