Hello Eve, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com


Acyclovir is a drug to treat infections caused by several types of infections, Acyclovir reduces the severity and duration of the duration of the outbreak lodged in the body, helps wounds to heal quickly, reduces pain or itching, reduces the risk of the virus spreading to other parts.


Grafadon is a drug that is used as a fever reducer for all ages and relieves pain such as headaches, toothaches, grafadon contains paracetamol (acetaminophen) which has a function to reduce fever and reduce pain.


Mumps is a swelling of the parotid gland caused by a viral infection, and the parotid gland is a gland that produces salivary glands located under the ear. It is an infectious disease caused by the paramyxovirus virus.


So giving acyclovir400 as an antiviral, and grafadon acetaminophenum as an anti-pain and to reduce fever. However, if you are still in doubt, or the mumps is still not deflated, and the fever is still intermittent, you should check back with your doctor, and you can consult the drugs that have been prescribed to you, because the doctor who examined you knows your current condition better. Actually, parotitis or mumps does not need to be treated, because if the immune system attacks it, only by increasing the body's resistance the parotid will go away on its own.


Some steps that can be done at home are:

Keeping hands clean
Eat highly nutritious foods for immune system
Get enough rest
Avoid activities at home
Use a mask so that the splash of spit doesn't spread to other people

Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
