In brief: Nothing special

Since this is viral & self heals over time, there is no need for "treatments".
Your main effort is to avoid actions which could hurt your system. Mono will usually have a mild hepatitis, so avoiding alcohol is prudent. The biggest lymph node in your body, the spleen, usually swells, so avoiding trauma that could rupture it is recommended. Good balanced nutrition & rest assures a good recovery.

In brief: There isn't much

For mild cases of mono, you may not need to do anything different than usual.
If more symptomatic--such as fatigue etc..Basically just more rest and fluid. If your spleen is enlarged (checked by your doc), u may be advised to avoid contact sport for awhile etc... If severe, you should follow advice of your treating physician/nurses. And of course, don't kiss anyone (kissing disease). Good luck.
