Patients with mononucleosis may present with non-specific symptoms that may be treated with antibiotics. Traditional teachings have maintained that ~100% of patients with mono who take antibiotics will develop a rash. In reality a minority of these patients will develop this complication. When present the rash is thought to be a hypersensitivity reaction rather than an actual allergy to the medication. While bothersome to the patients this rash is essentially harmless and can be managed with symptomatic treatment.
