THE CDC has issued wild guidance on how those infected with monkeypox should have sex.
The news comes as the monkeypox virus continues to spread in the United States and other parts of the world.
Guidelines released by the CDC this month recommend having virtual sex, masturbating together six feet apart without touching, and having sex with your clothes on.
They also recommend avoiding kissing.
此外, the CDC suggests washing hands, 性别, 玩具, 寝具, and clothes, and covering areas where rashes and sores are present.
The safest thing to you and your partner can do if you are infected with monkeypox, 然而, is to avoid having sex of any kind, and not kiss or touch each other, especially if you have rashes or sores.
Monkeypox is a rare viral disease that causes a rash, which can appear to be pimples or blisters.
Oftentimes people first have flu-like symptoms such as fever, 头痛, muscle aches and backache, 淋巴结肿大, 发冷, or exhaustion.
A rash usually appears within one to three days.
Sores can be almost anywhere on the body, including genitals, anus, 手, feet, 胸部, or face.
Symptoms may vary among patients.
这 病毒 can be spread from the time symptoms start until all sores (including scabs) have healed and a fresh layer of skin has formed, which can take several weeks.
The virus is spread through close and personal contact, like skin-to-skin touching.
The most common way to get infected is to touch, an infected person’s rash, 疮, or scabs.
Contact with fabrics and surfaces they touch can also infect you.
Similar to Covid-19, the virus can be spread through respiratory secretions, though it is not nearly as contagious.
因此, 接吻, 性别, hugging, and massaging an infected person are bad ideas.
If you develop symptoms, avoid sex until you see a doctor, who you should ask about the virus.
Be prepared to inform anyone you have had sex within the last 21 天.
Experts have also recommended avoiding raves, 派对, or clubs, where people are wearing minimal clothes and there is risk of touching.
Events where everyone is fully clothed and unlikely to share skin-to-skin contact are safer.
The CDC is still determining if the virus can be spread when someone has no symptoms, or through cumvaginal fluids, and fecal matter.
It should be noted that 99 percent of people who get monkeypox survive.
Those with weakened immune systems or eczema, children under 8, people with a history of eczema, and people who are pregnant or breastfeeding may be more likely to get seriously ill or die.
The West African strain can be very painful and cause scarring.
If someone gets the virus, they are likely to receive anti-virals.
Widespread vaccination is not recommended against the virus at this time, unless you have been in close contact with an infected person.
