**Symptoms of monkey pox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion. ** In addition, a rash may develop, often beginning on the face, then spreading to other parts of the body. This rash develops into lesions filled with fluid and eventually crust over.
Other symptoms may include conjunctivitis, sore throat, and in some cases, difficulty in breathing. The Mayo Clinic also notes that some patients may suffer from abdominal pain, hallucinations and delirium.
