The young man who became infected with monkey pox: Acne also spread to the genitals
Dan has described his experience after crossing the monkey line in early June.
He said he felt tired before the rash came out which spread to the genitals and lower body.
He told BBC correspondent Nick Rakes: I never thought I would get through it.
According to the UK Health and Safety Agency, there have been more than 1000 cases of monkey pox identified in the UK since the beginning of May.
Most of the infected people have been men who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men, where most live in London.
People with monkey pox symptoms are advised such as acne, fever, swollen glands, to stay home and contact NHS 111 or your local sexual health service for advice.
Monkey pox is spread through close contact, such as physical contact or sharing a bed with someone who has monkey pox or symptoms of monkey pox./Abcnews.al/
