Cheeks Feel Sore After Mumps?
Ass .. I ida farida, want to ask If it feels sore on the cheeks after mumping is that a natural thing? And how to overcome it? Thank you
Hi Ida Farida .. Thank you for the question.
Mumps or in medical language is called mumps is an infection or inflammation of the salivary glands caused by a virus. Mumps cause fever sufferers, swelling in the cheek area under the ear, feel pain when chewing food, joint pain and headache. Mumps own medication that is important is to increase the patient's endurance by eating nutritious food, adequate rest, consumption of vitamins, other than that given treatment to deal with pain and fever.
If the body's condition is good, recovery will also occur more quickly. The pain that you experience during recovery is a natural thing to happen. If there is no swelling, no fever, and no pain for jaw movement then you don't need to worry too much, but if the pain you feel is increasing, there is swelling or lumps, fever, headache, there is trauma to the jaw area so it is better You go to a doctor to get a checkup. Because pain in the jaw region can also occur due to:
Enlarged lymph nodes
Inflammation or infection of the temporomandibular joint
Nerve disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia
To reduce pain, you can take pain medications such as paracetamol according to the dose, compress the affected area with a warm towel, avoiding excessive jaw movements.
Hopefully it will be useful
