Is monkeypox treatable?

Yes, monkeypox is treatable and most patients recover within a few weeks without the need for treatment. However, the NHS warns that “if your symptoms are more severe and you become unwell, you may need treatment in hospital”.

Should someone develop symptoms of monkeypox, they are advised to self-isolate and keep away from others for two to four weeks.

In response to the outbreak, the Government has set up a monkeypox self-isolation guidance page. It states that patients should only leave their home “for essential purposes such as emergencies, urgent medical appointments, or for urgent health, and wellbeing issues”.
