Dr. Martin Raff answered:

How long before the symptoms of glandular fever go away?

Highly variable

Glandular_fever
As a general rule 4-12 wks, but chronic long-term manifestations are well documented. This is EBV infectious mononucleosis. This herpes virus, like the others, sets up permanent residence in people who are infected, and can potentially produce several different malignancies, and recurrence of symptoms of mono are also reported, as is recurrence.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

I've got the symptoms of glandular fever, and I'm getting worse. doctor says antibiotics don't help?

Correct

Glandular_fever
In fact, ampicillin, if given to patients with infectious mononucleosis, can produce a rash which will leave the person labeled as "allergic to penicillin" even if they are not. Antibiotics have no effect against EBV and can produce major complications. Listen to your doctor. They sound as if they are very good and know what they are doing.
