Herbal Remedies for Mumps
Mumps is an acute, contagious viral disease that causes painful enlargement of the salivary or parotid glands. It is caused by paramyxovirus and often occurs in childhood. The affected gland often swells up to an abnormal size and may subsequently infect the other glands, the testicles or other organs. Childhood infection, which often passes quickly, often confers lifetime immunity.
Herbal remedies include immune stimulants and antiviral herbs. Other symptoms can be treated as necessary.
