@lisi Hello, glandular fever is more common in teenagers and adults. Glandular fever usually stems from an infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a highly contagious virus. There is no cure for glandular fever, which usually passes without treatment. Symptoms of glandular fever are a temperature of 100.4°F, a rash, nausea and a loss of appetite, malaise, fatigue, tiredness, weakness, swelling, and puffiness around the eyes, a sore throat, and pain in the upper abdomen. A person who has an EBV infection can pass it on through bodily fluids, such as saliva that's why she denied. This virus can be spread through sharing utensils. Thanks.
