"It's especially important that health care workers pay attention to the appearance of these skin lesions.
"Monkeypox is often described as causing pustules and pus-filled lesions.
However, in this outbreak, the primary cutaneous manifestation is actually pseudopustules. These are hard white pustules that look like pustules but do not contain pus.
"This feature is very rare in other diseases, so it's a very clear sign of monkeypox."
There are 2,469 confirmed cases in the UK as of 28 July.
