Symptoms to look for:
Mumps may first present with body aches, fatigue, headache and low-grade fever. Swelling of the parotid glands (glands around the jaw and neck area) is the most common symptom and occurs in 30-40% of infected individuals. The swelling may be on one side of the face or both. It may first be noted as earache and tenderness on the jaw. Symptoms tend to decrease after 1 week and usually resolve after 10 days.
Please contact your family health care provider or school nurse if you have more questions or concerns about your child.
