Symptoms of monkeypox include fevers, chills, swollen lymph glands, rash, which evolve into fluid filled blisters.

You can get monkeypox from contaminated objects including bedsheets and towels.

Someone should be considered infectious until those scabs fall off…

And there is new growth underneath.

If you have symptoms of monkeypox, seek testing at a sexual health clinic.
