    Can you get mono this way?

    I know that mono is caused either by the Epstein-Barr virus or the cytomegalovirus. A doctor I went to didn't wash his hands and even wiped his mouth with the back of his hand. He then touched the tongue depressor (Getting pretty close to the part he put in my mouth, he *might* have touched it, lets assume he did). Can I get mono this way? He was pretty unsanitary.

    Sounds like an awful experience. I don't know whether or not you would get mono from that. Perhaps someone else may know.

    I probably would have stopped him. Since getting mono, I am a lot more germ conscience. Probably to excess...
