Check yourself for Mpox!

800 x 800 px MP4 (1:1)


If you think you’ve been exposed to monkeypox, you should check yourself carefully for lesions.

Sometimes these lesions can be difficult to see.

You may need the help of a friend, partner, or medical provider.

Use a hand-held mirror to examine yourself.

Monkeypox, once you’ve had it, and the scabs have fallen off and new skin grown underneath, you are no longer infectious to other people.
