Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with monkeypox virus. Monkeypox occurs throughout Central and West Africa, often near tropical rainforests. Monkeypox virus infection usually causes a flu-like illness with fever, headache, muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash. Although monkeypox is not related to chickenpox, the characteristic rash of monkeypox looks a lot like it, starting with red spots on the mouth and face, and then spreading to the arms and legs.
For four to five days, the spots turn into small fluid-filled blisters that are often sensitive to the touch, eventually becoming donut-shaped and begin to crust after two weeks. There is currently absolutely no indication that there will be a blockage as a result of monkeypox.
Symptoms of Monkeypox
Monkeypox symptoms in people are similar to, but less severe than, smallpox symptoms.
Fever, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness are among symptoms of monkeypox. The fundamental distinction between smallpox and monkeypox symptoms is that monkeypox causes lymph node swelling (lymphadenopathy), but smallpox does not.
The disease starts with:
Lymph nodes swollen
The patient develops a rash 1 to 3 days (sometimes longer) following the onset of fever, which usually starts on the face and spreads to other regions of the body.
Monkeypox Incubation Period
Monkeypox has a 7-14 day incubation period (from infection to symptoms), although it can be as short as 5 days.
The disease lasts about 24 weeks on average. Monkeypox has been demonstrated to kill one out of every ten people who develop the disease in Africa.

Treatment for Monkeypox
According to the CDC, the smallpox vaccine is at least 85 percent effective against the monkeypox virus. For smallpox prevention, the United States now has one antiviral and two FDA-approved vaccinations.
