What is glandular fever? Symptoms, causes, and prevention of glandular fever.
Hello, yesterday when my son asked my grandmother to share her water bottle, she denied it. She said she is suffering from glandular fever. I want to know how glandular fever is different from normal fever. What are the causes of glandular fever and its symptoms and how it can be prevented?
@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.
