What are the symptoms of mumps

The incubation period is 17 to 21 days. Initially, your child will seem to be generally under the weather. She will then develop a fever and the glands in front of and under your child's ear will swell up on one side. Your child may even become delirious with the fever. A few days later, her temperature will fall and then rise sharply. In addition, the other side of your child's face will become swollen. She will have a stiff neck and a sore throat. She will also complain of a dry throat. The complications associated with this illness are meningitis and inflammation of the testicles.

What is the treatment for mumps

Call your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. There is no specific treatment for this illness. The only thing you can do is to ensure that your child is comfortable. Sponge her with tepid water and give her a baby paracetamol after consulting your doctor. This should reduce her fever. Your child might find it difficult to chew and swallow, so give her soft foods. In addition, ensure that her fluid intake is high.
