 Mumps

Mumps is a very common viral illness in childhood, that is caused by a virus known as a paramyxo virus that infects the parotid glands which are the salivary glands located at the jaw just below the ears. Symptoms include: chills, headache, swelling of one or both glands, fever, reduced appetite, sore throat, and pain when swallowing or chewing. Swallowing pain is worse with acidic substances like citrus juices. Frequently, one of the parotid glands will swell before the other, and as swelling in one gland goes down, the other starts to swell. Mumps is transmitted by means of infected droplets of saliva or direct contact with contaminated items. It can be spread to other people by breathing, coughing, kissing, sneezing, talking, drinking out of the same glass or sharing utensils. The incubation period of the virus varies between14 to 24 days (average of 18 days). A person with mumps is contagious any time from 48 hours before symptoms begin to 6 days after the symptoms have started ...more

This illness is not as contagious as measles or chickenpox, and one attack usually affords lifetime immunity. Mumps is most common in children between 3 and 10 years of age, however it may occur through teenage years and even in adults. If it does occur after puberty, the testes or ovaries may be affected and sterility can result. If the testicles are affected, they become swollen and painful; if the ovaries or pancreas are affected then abdominal pain will result. Other organs that can be affected in rare, severe cases include the brain, pancreas, and kidneys with possibly very serious complications.

Complete recovery from mumps takes about 10 days if there are no complications. However, if any of these symptoms occur see your doctor as soon as possible: tenderness or swelling of the testicles, severe vomiting, a fever over 104 degrees, lethargy, stiff neck followed by bad headache. The severe vomiting can indicate the infection has spread to the pancreas. The stiff neck/headache may indicate meningitis could be developing.
