No clear treatment.: Apparently, glandular fever is a viral infection caused by the epstein-barr virus. It can be transmitted by oral contact, like kissing, and airborne saliva droplets. At this time, there is no specific treatment. Paracetamol/tylenol and nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can be used to help the flu like symptoms. Otherwise it resolves over 2-4 weeks without issues.
