What A The Mumps?

  • Mumps is a disease caused by a virus that usually spreads through saliva and can infect many parts of the body, especially the parotid salivary glands. The parotid salivary glands, which produce saliva for the mouth, are found toward the back of each cheek, in the area between the ear and jaw. In cases of mumps, these glands typically swell and become painful.

  • The glands usually become increasingly swollen and painful over a period of 1 to 3 days. The pain gets worse when the child swallows, talks, chews, or drinks acidic juices (like orange juice). In rare cases, mumps will attack other groups of salivary glands instead of the parotids. If this happens, swelling may be noticed under the tongue, under the jaw, or all the way down to the front of the chest.

  • Mumps can lead to inflammation and swelling of the brain and other organs, although this is not common.

  • Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) are both rare complications of mumps.

  • Symptoms appear in the first week after the parotid glands begin to swell and may include: high fever, stiff neck, headache, nausea and vomiting, drowsiness, convulsions, and other signs of brain involvement.

  • Mumps is an extremely contagious viral infection that usually affects children.
  • The condition has a number of symptoms, the most common one being swelling of one or both of the salivary glands on the sides of the face. These glands are called the parotid glands and when they swell the person develops a “hamster like” face.
  • Once someone has had mumps, they usually become immune to future infections.

Signs and Symptoms of Mumps

  • Cases of mumps may start with a fever of up to 103 degrees Fahrenheit (39.4 degrees Celsius), as well as a The symptoms of mumps normally appear 2-3 weeks after the person has been infected, however almost 20% of people with the virus do not suffer any signs or symptoms at all.
  • The main symptom of mumps is painful and swollen parotid (salivary) glands, which cause the person’s cheeks to puff out.

Other Symptoms Can Include:

  • Dryness in mouth
  • Feeling tired and weak
  • Fever/high temperature
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Pain in joints
  • Pain in the sides of the face where it is swollen
  • Pain experienced when swallowing
  • Reduced appetite
  • Trouble swallowing

Homeopathic Remedies For The Mumps

  • Aconite
    Useful at the beginning stages of mumps, these children have a sudden onset of fever, restlessness, anxiety, and great thirst.

  • Belladonna
    This is for flushed face and throbbing headache. The glands are swollen, hot and sensitive to pressure, worse on the right side. The child is drowsy but may have difficulty sleeping.  The pains are flying and lancinating and extend to the ear. It is useful when the swelling suddenly subsides and is followed by throbbing headache and delirium.

  • Conium
    this indicated by excessive hardness of the swelling.

  • Lachesis
    This corresponds to left-sided mumps, with purplish swellings and aggravation after sleep.

  • Mercurius solubilis
    Right-sided
    swelling of throat glands; profuse and offensive salivation and perspiration.

  • Phytolacca
    stony hard throat glands
    , especially on the right side. The throat pains may extend to the ear, and they may have an irresistible desire to bite their teeth together. One of their characteristic symptoms is pain from sticking out their tongue. They tend to be worse in cold or wet weather.

  • Pilocarpinum or Pilocarpus jaborandi
    Some homeopaths believe  this medicine is the best remedy for the mumps. The main symptoms are excessive salivation and perspiration. Dry mouth, red face. This is also a good remedy for complications that some children get from the mumps. (Note: Pilocarpine muriate is what famous homeopath Dr. Burnett termed his "big shot in mumps."  It seems to affect especially the parotid gland.)
  • Pulsatilla
    This medicine is helpful in children approaching puberty who get the mumps and experience swollen breasts or testicles. They are thirstless, despite having a fever, and they are sensitive to warm rooms.
    The tongue is thickly coated, the mouth is dry and the pain is worse evenings and after lying down.

  • Rhus tox
    These children have swollen glands which are worse on the left side. Their symptoms are aggravated by cold, and they may have cold sores on their lips. There is much aching in the limbs, the person is restless and the symptoms are worse at night. It is our best remedy in secondary parotitis. The left side is more apt to be affected.
