Patient Comments: Mumps - Treatment

Question:

What treatment did you receive for your mumps? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Heatherbelle, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 19

I first had mumps as a child and the treatment suggested by the doctor was a bit barbaric. My Mother would spread a thick layer of kaolin clay on a sanitary towel (they were huge then), grill it then slap it on my swollen glands. Very painful and I don"t think it did much good either! I currently have it again - paracetamol is much better!
