In brief: None needed

Most of us get epstein barr virus (EBV) as children and get over it on our own.
You should consult a doctor if the symptoms last more than 4 weeks. There is no specific treatment for EBV infection.

i waited 4 years to have an excellent shot as the main lead in our high school musical, and came down with mononucleosis just after trying out--and winning--the part of Curly in "Oklahoma". My mom made me quit! And I was symptom-free in 2 weeks. Nasty virus.
