Monkeypox: The key sign to spot in your neck, armpits or groin – Dr Chris


Share post:

New monkeypox cases are being detected on a daily basis as the infection continues to spread. The latest guidance shares that close contacts of cases with the highest risk of exposure should self-isolate for 21 days. Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, Doctor Chris reassured the public about the virus not being “deadly” and named the tell-tale signs to watch out for.

While monkeypox is characterised by a “traumatic” rash, the TV doctor explained that one of the characteristic warning signs is large glands.

This swelling can appear in your neck, armpits and groin, the doctor detailed.

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), swollen lymph nodes are the key feature that helps to distinguish monkeypox from smallpox.

It explains that swollen glands might be localised or crop up in several different areas across your body.
