The term "mononucleosis" means increase in mononuclear cells. Some blood cells are affected by mono. It is a viral disease.
There are chances that your child can have symptoms of mono and can be diagnosed with mono more than once in his life time. But you cannot have mono caused by EBV more than once. Mono is a viral infection.
Mono is a viral infection. People who are infected with mono have antibodies which attack and destroy invading bacteria and virus. There is more white blood cells found in mono.
Mono is caused by EBV. The EBV can only reactivate. But it can not occur for the second time.
During the initial 1-2 weeks of getting infected with mono, mono is contagious. The infection can be spread for many months even after the symptoms have disappeared. The virus he virus lives in the saliva, and can also live for several hours outside the body.
The disease mononucleosis in not curable. It is best recommended by the doctor to take plenty rest, drink water and fluid. If the virus enters into the body then it can’t be removed in any way.

Epstein-Barr virus is the causative factor of Mono. Some other organisms like CMV, adenovirus, HIV, toxoplasma, rubella, and the hepatitis viruses too, occasionally cause mono. Mono is a self limiting disease.
It spreads quickly through close contact. So it is contagious for one to several weeks. It can be contagious for some people for some more time.
Mono is a viral infection. Getting mononucleosis for the second time is apparently very rare. Mononucleosis virus can only 'reactivate' now and again.
It spreads from droplet infection while coughing or sneezing. It spreads from person to person. Saliva is the chief mode of transmission.
Infectious mononucleosis is a viral disease and tonsillitis is a bacterial disease. So there is no similarity between them. The two diseases are different from one another. Some of the symptoms of the two diseases may match but they are different.
No, donation of blood is not permitted if you have mononucleosis. You can donate blood once you have recovered from mono. As then the risk of transmitting the virus is absent.

A chocolate or any type of food can share the virus of mononucleosis. When the infected person eats the half of a chocolate and shares the other half with his friend then, the virus can be easily transmitted. So it is recommended to restrain sharing from an infected person.
Children always share their things with their friends. The virus can be transmitted from the infected children to another through any means. But mostly mono is spread through sex.
