*Beware when kissing*

Infectious mononucleosis (mono) is often called the kissing disease. The virus that
causes mono is transmitted through saliva, so you can get it through kissing, but you
can also be exposed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing a glass or food utensil
with someone who has mono. However, mononucleosis isn't as contagious as some
infections, such as the common cold.

You're most likely to get the kissing disease with all the signs and symptoms if you're
an adolescent or young adult.

Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Sore throat, perhaps a strep throat that doesn't get better with antibiotics
  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes in your neck and armpits
  • Swollen tonsils
  • Headache
  • Skin rash
  • Loss of appetite
  • Night sweats
The virus typically has an incubation period of four to eight weeks, although in young
children this period is shorter. Signs and symptoms such as fever and sore throat
usually lessen within a couple of weeks, although fatigue, enlarged lymph nodes and
a swollen spleen may last for a few weeks longer.
