Mono has no cure, but symptoms will go away on their own in four- to eight-weeks. However, there are steps you can take to make yourself or your child feel better.

Treatment will most often include:

  • rest
  • eating healthy foods
  • drinking lots of fluids
  • in some cases, you or your child may be given corticosteroids, a type of steroid that will reduce swelling of the throat and tonsils.
