Similar to Smallpox: The lesions of monkeypox are similar to smallpox. The lesions usually develop through several stages before crusting and resolving. They start as red bumps often on the face and chest. They evolve into vesicles, then pustules, then crusts.

Resembles Smallpox: In humans, monkeypox is similar to smallpox, although it is often milder. Blisters may occur on the face and chest. Vaccination against smallpox is assumed to provide protection against human monkeypox infection considering they are closely related.
