Mumps can also spread by touch. For example, your child may catch the virus by touching a surface covered with infected droplets and then touching their eyes, mouth or face.</p> <p>Mumps is very contagious (spreads very easily) from one to two days before the glands start to swell to five days after swelling starts. If your child has mumps, keep them away from others, especially from babies and younger children, until they are no longer contagious.</p><h2>How mumps is diagnosed</h2> <p>Your family doctor will diagnose mumps by doing a physical exam of your child. The doctor may also order a blood test or swabs from the nose or throat to help confirm the diagnosis. </p><h2>Complications of mumps</h2> <p>Mumps is usually mild in children, but complications can sometimes occur.

You can support your child by trying to make them comfortable.</p> <h3>Monitor and treat the fever</h3> <p>If your child has a fever or is in pain, you may give them <a href="/Article?contentid=62&language=English">acetaminophen</a> or <a href="/Article?contentid=153&language=English">ibuprofen</a>. Do not give your child <a href="/Article?contentid=77&language=English">ASA (acetylsalicylic acid)</a>.</p> <h3>Give your child fluids</h3> <p>Offer your child water or other fluids often to keep them hydrated.</p> <h3>Isolate your child and allow them bed rest</h3> <p>Your child cannot go to school or day care for five days after their glands start to swell. In Canada, cases of mumps are reported to the nearest Public Health Department. The department will tell you when it is safe for your child to return to regular activities.</p><h2>How to prevent mumps</h2> <p>A vaccine to protect against mumps is available free of charge in many countries as part of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Children receive it in two doses.</p> <ul> <li>The first dose is given soon after your child's first birthday.</li> <li>The second dose is given before your child starts school.</li> </ul> <p>Most cases of mumps occur in people who have not been vaccinated or have not received the booster shot. Ask your doctor about the MMR vaccine if you or your child are not immune.</p><h2>When to see a doctor</h2> <p>Call your child's regular doctor if:</p> <ul> <li>your child's fever lasts for longer than three days</li> <li>the swelling lasts for longer than seven days (in many cases, the other side of the face will swell within a few days of the first side)</li> <li>the swelling becomes more painful</li> </ul> <p>Take your child to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911 if:</p> <ul> <li>their behaviour or physical abilities change or they have a seizure</li> <li>they are not eating or drinking and are dehydrated.</li> </ul>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/Mumps_MED_ILL_EN.pngMumpsFalse
