Monkeypox is a virus disease that is spreading in Los Angeles and much of the USA. Monkeypox is transmitted through skin contact. It can be on clothes, bedding, and towels from a sick person.
If you develop a new rash that is cloudy inside, call our appointment line immediately. Please inform our office of your rash and any symptoms so we can prepare to see you. A telemedicine visit may be arranged and medications to help reduce symptoms prescribed even by phone.
If you do not have telephone camera access, an in person visit may be requested instead.
