There is no specific therapy for mononucleosis but it mainly involves bed rest and drinking lots of fluids. By treating secondary infection its a occasionally a strep infection and even sometimes develop a sinus infection of tonsils. You can also risk yourself with a rash if using medication. Because for example amoxicillin and penicillin aren't recommended for people with mononucleosis. Most people with mono recover fully and can return to school or work in a few weeks. But a small number of people will experience fatigue for several months.
Infection cycle : mononucleosis is a virus, reservoir includes the human body, then the portal of exit is saliva, pathogen is person to person and body secretion (saliva), portal of entry is mucous membrane (mouth), and the susceptible host is a human and the body defenses become weak.
