Mumps is a contagious disease caused by a virus that passes from one person to another through saliva, nasal secretions, and close personal contact. It is most common in children. Symptoms of mumps usually appear within two weeks of exposure to the virus. Flu-like symptoms may be the first to appear, including:
• body aches
• loss of appetite
• low-grade fever
HOW IS MUMPS DIAGNOSED?
Normally, mumps can be diagnosed by its symptoms alone, especially by examining the facial swelling. In addition to examining this area and taking a note of the symptoms, a doctor might:
• Check inside the mouth to see the position of the tonsils - when infected with mumps, a person's tonsils can get pushed to the side
• Take the patient's temperature
• Take a sample of blood, urine, or saliva for testing
• Take a sample of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) from the spine for testing - this is usually only in severe cases
HOW IS MUMPS TREATED?
The virus that causes mumps will not respond to antibiotics. Taking adequate rest and painkillers offers relief from pain. The swelling of glands can be soothed through cold compress. Mumps usually subsides within a week or 10 days
DID YOU KNOW?
In pregnant women, there is a high risk of parotid glands being affected which can cause acute discomfort to the mother and the child.
