Dear linda beck, You mensioned your daughter got stuffy nose, caugh, sore throat
and some neckgland enlargement what about fever? Has she got fever as well? By mensioning Mono I presume you
meant Infectious Mononeocleosis or Glandular fever
. Glandular fever presents with sore throat,
fever, swelling of lymphglands not only of neck but of armpit(Axillary) groin(Inguinal) including
lymph glands of arms(Apitrochlier)also gets enlargement of spleen.(Speenomegally) Person gets extreamely exhausted.
The diagnosis mainly done by blood test
for pausity of monocytes and presence of Auatralian antibodies
. EB Virus is responsible.
Kindest regards Dr.S.k.Mukherjee
