17 y.o. DD has mono!

And a sinus infection that won't respond to amoxycillin; we just came back from the doctor now we're up to a Z-pack. Any advice? I told her she has to have a bedtime curfew, and stay away from the little ones.

LOTS of rest!! I have had chronic mono in the past where it keeps coming back...and the last time I had it was sleeping for 20 hours a day!!! I didn't feel completely better for almost 9 months. Also, make sure she's not doing any contact activities where she could fall or get hit with a soccer ball, etc... Nothing more except to repeat LOTS of rest!!!

I had it in college when I was student teaching (of all times!) She'll need lots of rest. Have her take a multivitamin and stay away from contact activities (sledding, etc.) her spleen is enlarged and could rupture if hit. Other than that, it took a couple months until I felt totally better.

I know this is a bit ot, but how does one catch mono? I know that it's called the 'kissing' disease, but really how does it hit you?

Re: 17 y.o. DD has mono!

Ick! I had mono when I was 16 and was out of school for 2 weeks.

Get her some paper plates and cups and don't let her use the regular dishes. That's what my Doc told us to keep me from spreading it to the rest of the family.

LOTS of rest and water.
