How do you get rid of mumps?
There is no specific treatment for mumps. The best protection against the disease is vaccination.
If you do have symptoms of mumps visit your GP for further analysis. They may be able to diagnose you on your symptoms alone, or can request a blood test for confirmation. You may treat your symptoms with bed rest, consistent intake of fluids, and paracetamol.
