New cases of MONKEYPOX continue to be reported in the United States, according to data from Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The illness can be contracted by anyone, but it is more common if someone has been in close contact with or sexually abused by someone who has the symptoms.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Get new guidance about how to identify monkeypox during the outbreak.
People with monkeypox are known to have a fever, swelling of the lymph nodes, headaches, and muscle aches.
These symptoms include a rash on the face, mouth, and body that spreads to their feet and hands.
Recent cases have shown a slight rash around the mouth, genitals and anus.
Instead of rashes all over the body, some patients noticed small, localized lesions that were not restricted to their face, hands or feet.
Some people may develop flu-like symptoms after the rash. Other people did not experience those symptoms.
Scientists warn of unusual symptoms in patients in the United States that are not normally associated with the virus.
Patients reported feeling pain around the anus or rectum, rectal bleeding or proctitis (painful inflammation or swelling of the rectum lining), as well as the need to bowel move even though their bowels are empty.
Monkeypox, like smallpox, is a member of the same virus family as smallpox.
According to the World Health Organization, monkeypox can be treated in a matter of weeks. However, the disease can prove fatal for 1 out 10 people.
