Causes Of Repeated Mumps?
, my brother is 23 years old, he often gets mumps, it hurts a lot in the swollen part, and it has been going on for a long time and over and over again. But there are no symptoms of fever, only swelling and pain, and the swelling only lasts a day and then heals for two days then swelling again and so on. It is said that a person gets mumps only once but how come he does it repeatedly. Why is that?
Patients with a history of mumps are theoretically immune to the virus for life, so there is a low chance of recurrence of mumps. However, there have been cases of recurrent MUMPs in adult patients.
However, it is necessary to carry out an evaluation and direct examination by a family doctor or internal medicine doctor to confirm your relative's clinical condition. Because the swelling or gndongen doesn't go down in 1 day, then it recurs again, then it's deflated again. This condition needs to be confirmed by other possible causes, such as an infection of the gums, or the presence of enlarged lymph nodes.
Risk factors that can aggravate the patient's condition include smoking, sleeping late at night, and physical fatigue.
By consulting a doctor when swelling occurs, will help the doctor conduct an examination and determine the cause. Blood tests or X-rays can be planned according to indications.
Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination required.
For the initial condition, your sister can apply a warm compress to the swollen area until the condition improves.
