    Symptoms of monkeypox typically include a fever, intense headache, muscle aches, back pain, low energy, swollen lymph nodes and a skin rash or lesions. The rash usually begins within one to three days of the start of a fever. Lesions can be flat or slightly raised, filled with clear or yellowish fluid, and can then crust, dry up and fall off. The number of lesions on one person can range from a few to several thousand. The rash tends to be concentrated on the face, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. They can also be found on the mouth, genitals and eyes.

    Symptoms typically last between 2 to 4 weeks and go away on their own without treatment. If you think you have symptoms that could be monkeypox, seek advice from your health care provider. Let them know if you have had close contact with someone who has suspected or confirmed monkeypox.

    In most cases, the symptoms of monkeypox go away on their own within a few weeks, but in some individuals, they can lead to medical complications and even death. Newborns, children and people with underlying immune deficiencies may be at risk of more serious symptoms and death from monkeypox.

    Complications from severe cases of monkeypox include skin infections, pneumonia, confusion and eye infections which can lead to loss of vision. Around 3–6% of reported cases have led to death in endemic countries in recent times, often in children or persons who may have other health conditions. It is important to note that this may be an overestimate because surveillance in endemic countries is limited.

    There are several vaccines available for prevention of smallpox that also provide some protection against monkeypox. A newer vaccine that was developed for smallpox (MVA-BN, also known as Imvamune, Imvanex or Jynneos) was approved in 2019 for use in preventing monkeypox and is not yet widely available. WHO is working with the manufacturer to improve access. People who have been vaccinated against smallpox in the past will also have some protection against monkeypox. The original smallpox vaccines are no longer available to the general public, and people below the age of 40–50 years are unlikely to have been vaccinated, since vaccination against smallpox ended in 1980 after it became the first disease to be eradicated. Some laboratory personnel or health workers may have been vaccinated with a more recent smallpox vaccine.

    You can reduce your risk by limiting contact with people who have suspected or confirmed monkeypox.

    If you do need to have physical contact with someone who has monkeypox because you are a health worker or live together, encourage the infected person to self-isolate and cover any skin lesion if they can (e.g., by wearing clothing over the rash). When you are physically close to them, they should wear a medical mask, especially if they are coughing or have lesions in their mouth. You should wear one also. Avoid skin-to-skin contact whenever possible and use disposable gloves if you have any direct contact with lesions. Wear a mask when handling any clothes or bedding if the person cannot do it themselves.

    Regularly clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub, especially after contact with the person who is infected, their clothes, bed sheets, towels and other items or surfaces they have touched or that might have come into contact with their rash or respiratory secretions (e.g., utensils, dishes). Wash the person’s clothes, towels and bedsheets and eating utensils with warm water and detergent. Clean and disinfect any contaminated surfaces and dispose of contaminated waste (e.g., dressings) appropriately.

    As a person vaccinated against Small Pox I do not fear the Monkey!

    On a serious note it was posited at the time Small Pox was being erradicated that one of the many closely related Poxes might jump the species barrier and become the new Small Pox.

    Of 1076 cases of monkeypox in the uk so far, 1033 are in men, and the UKHSA said the majority of cases continue to be reported in men who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men.

    WTF??

    I personally don't understand this drive to push monkepox as an STD that affects mostly sexual minorities as there can be a lot of other groups exposed and vulnerable to this. May be miscommunication but fml the WHO should keep their mouth shut until they have actually proper data instead of releasing knee jerk communiques.

    As i understood it the lessions, filled with fluid containing the virus just like herpes, often has a concentration around the anus. So people dont know they have it but pass it along after butte sex.

    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    The Western mutation of Monkey Pox is being termed an STD because currently sexual contact is the main driver of its spread.

    Obviously any group that engages in anal sex without protection will be the most vulnerable.

    Or if you like, if you are the sixth carriage in a train being run on a methed-out rentboy, and one of the earlier carriages is dripping Monkey Pox, then you are likely to get it.

    Not even the straight men who have sex with other men are safe
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    It's got nothing to do with sexual orientation and everything to do with high-risk behaviours, and when it comes to STDs having multiple partners without protection while intoxicated is a brilliant way to catch an STD. Anal is just the icing on the cake.
