Infectious : Infectious mononucleosis is caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv) and acute infection usually involves sore throat, fever, enlarged lymph nodes (including the spleen), and tiredness. Different people will have a different severity of mono symptoms - some get very ill, some do not get sick at all. It is spread through saliva and close contact which is why it's been known as the "kissing disease". Since it is a virus, it is not treated with antibiotics. There is a blood test available that can test for mono infection and antibodies. The test will tell you if he has ever had it, if he has it now, or if he had it in the past and is now immune to it - all helpful information.

Norovirus and mono got me. Gastritis for the last 2 months. Some stomach tenderness. Found a little IM in stomach on scope. Take Prilosec. Thoughts?
Sorry about yr GI: If you really have a gastritis (inflamed stomach) the antacid Prilosec that should help. About your viral infections with Norovirus and Infectious Mono virus we have no antiviral drugs for those and you will just have to endure. The people who do worst are the very young (infants) and the very old (over 75). You will do fine. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with Mono a year ago and my tonsils were infected and swollen, now the pus Is gone. My tonsils haven't gone down and get sore and pain
Common issue: The palatine tonsils are the bodies sentry station for all things that come through your mouth. They are designed to screen, detect and react to viruses and bacteria as they enter,sending messages to your immune system to build antibodies. You likely are more reactive after the mono, but this should improve over time. If you snore or have sleep problems they might remove them. ...Read more
