Ask Dr. D: Why Isn't My Monkeypox Spot Going Away?

Are you one of the 1 million+ plus people who received a Monkeypox vaccine? If so, you may be breathing easier knowing that if you catch the disease — which the Centers for Disease Control continues to call a public health emergency — you will be subject to less extreme symptoms, which can include lesions and excruciating pain.But if you are one of those 1 million+, you may have also experienced an itchy, uncomfortable spot where the shot was administered; typically on the forearm. As opposed to flu or COVID-19 shots, the MPX spot can last weeks, barely fading or getting more comfortable for days on end.
