Glandular fever can leave you feeling sluggish and run-down. Seeing a doctor online offers a convenient way to get the help you need from the comfort of your own home.

Our doctors are available from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, so it's easy to fit your appointment into your schedule.

Glandular fever (also sometimes called ‘mono’) is a common condition that affects the glands in your neck. Teenagers and people in their early twenties are most often affected.

While it’ll usually clear up of its own accord within a few weeks, some symptoms may continue for much longer.

If you’ve got glandular fever, or think you may have it, our GPs can discuss your symptoms, take a look at any swelling and provide expert advice to help you deal with your symptoms.

It takes around a month or two for the virus that causes glandular fever to cause symptoms and these may come on suddenly, or develop gradually, with new symptoms developing over time.

Symptoms you should look out for include:

  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Swelling in parts of the neck
  • Feelings of exhaustion

Some people will also experience cold sweats, swelling in their tonsils, rashes and a loss of appetite.

In rare cases, there may be a yellowing of the skin and eyes known as jaundice, while some people develop purple spots at the top of their mouth.

While there’s no known cure for glandular fever, it’s recommended that you speak to a doctor as soon as you suspect you may have the condition.

A GP will be able to provide advice you can follow at home and prescribe medication to make you comfortable and relieve your symptoms while your body fights off the virus.

As it’s caused by a virus, antibiotics won’t be any use in treating glandular fever. However, a course of corticosteroids is sometimes prescribed in cases where swelling is particularly bad or you’re experiencing other complications.

You should seek urgent medical assistance as soon as possible if you develop breathing problems, have trouble swallowing fluid or develop extreme pain in your stomach.

Glamdular fever is the result of a viral infection.

It takes around a month or two for the virus that causes glandular fever to cause symptoms and these may come on suddenly, or develop gradually, with new symptoms developing over time.
