Standard Mononucleosis Treatment in Safety Harbor for Teens and Young Adults

Also known as Mono and “the Kissing Disease,” Mononucleosis is a viral infection that affects the throat and respiratory system of the infected. Spread through saliva, either through kissing or sharing utensils and foods, the disease is most prevalent in teens and young adults. It comes with many symptoms, such as sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and tonsils, high fevers, and chronic fatigue. But what is standard mononucleosis treatment in Safety Harbor for teenagers and young adults?

Mononucleosis, if left untreated, can cause inflammation of the liver and spleen enlargement. Since it’s a common human virus, there’s not much treatment that can be done to eliminate it from your system. You have to take it slow, rest, drink plenty of fluids. You also have to treat the symptoms, such as high fever, with over-the-counter pain relievers and fever reducers. Severe complications beyond the average mild symptoms are rare.

How Long Does Mononucleosis Typically Last?

Most teenagers and young adults have resilient immune systems, which means mononucleosis lasts for less time in their systems than it would in someone older. Mononucleosis typically clears up in two to four weeks, but an infected person can remain contagious for up to six weeks after symptoms have cleared.

What Should a Mono-Infected Person Avoid?

  • Avoid kissing anyone.
  • Avoid sharing food or utensils with anyone.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with a weakened immune system.

To protect yourself from mononucleosis, you should consume a healthy, nutritious diet, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. In other words, strive to keep yourself healthy through healthy habits. It would help if you also washed your hands regularly to avoid transmitting viral germs.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
