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

As the number of cases of monkeypox in the UK continues to rise, ITV’s Doctor Chris explains how to recognize the symptoms, which include a symptom that appears in the neck, armpits, and groin.

As the epidemic spreads, new cases of monkeypox are discovered on a regular basis. Close contacts of patients with the highest risk of exposure are advised to self-isolate for 21 days, according to the most recent guideline. Doctor Chris reassured the audience that the virus is not “deadly,” and listed the warning signals to look out for on ITV’s This Morning.

While monkeypox is known for its “traumatic” rash, the TV expert said that big glands are one of the warning indicators.

According to the doctor, edema might arise in the neck, armpits, and groin.

Swollen lymph nodes are the essential trait that distinguishes monkeypox from smallpox, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

It states that swollen glands might be localized or appear in several locations across your body.

Doctor Chris mentioned other symptoms that might suggest monkeypox in addition to big glands.
