How do children get mono and is it contageous? My son is 6 and going to be 7 in a few months.
He goes to public school in hawaii
Infectious : Infectious mono is a viral illness caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv). It is spread primarily through saliva which is why it is also known as the "kissing disease", but can also be spread through sharing eating utensils. Even among people who catch ebv, many are not symptomatic, so special precautions (such as no kissing) are not needed. 95% of adults aged 35-40 have been exposed to it at some point and have immunity to it - at least 50% of them had no symptoms of mono. I attached a link to the page on ebv from the center for disease control with more information. ...Read more

Preventing infection: Breast feeding is great in providing stronger immune system in general, but if the infant is exposed to persons with febrile illness, there in no guarantee he will be protected because the virus or bacteria can be airborne, so just being in the same room can get them sick, make sure you keep the immunization & well baby check up appointments with your pediatrician. Good luck. Enjoy your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
