In this episode we discuss the ongoing Monkeypox virus outbreak. We review how it originated, how the virus is transmitted and discuss if it's something we have to worry about as pediatricians and parents. We review common rash mimics in kids- and what differentiates these rashes from Monkeypox. In addition, we discuss ways to prevent and treat the virus.
