Yes, it's "Mono": Epstein barr is the virus that causes mononucleosis and is transmitted via contact with saliva of an infected person. Mono symptoms include fever, sore throat and swollen lymph glands. Some doctors treat mono symptoms with steroids. Complications include liver and spleen swelling. Epstein barr can also cause certain rare types of cancer. 95% of adults over 35 have epstein barr virus.

Until the eye clears: Antibiotics are usually prescribed for pink eye, but many cases are viral which is not affected by antibiotics. Therefore, it is best to wait until the eye discharge has resolved before sending a child back to school. Adults can return to work within a few days. Hand hygiene is always important as many cases of pink eye (conjunctivitis) are transmitted by hand contact.
