Mononucleosis In Teenagers

Mononucleosis (Glandular Fever) is most common among teenagers and young adults.

Teenagers are more likely to experience the 'fully-blown' symptoms of mono (mononucleosis ) than younger children, toddles or babies.

In particular, teenagers are more likely to suffer from weakness and from a loss of appetite. It is not uncommon for the fatigue and weakness to last for weeks and sometimes it can even last for months.

The key is for your teenager (adolescent) to rest and to not push themselves or 'overdo it'. It's also recommended that the teenage mononucleosis sufferer avoids exercise or vigorous activity. In fact, even after recovery from mono (mononucleosis) , it's advised that teenagers abstain from any vigorous activities for at least one month.
