hi doc, is it true that if someone in his life ever experienced mumps … won’t get infected with mumps anymore … and why ??

1 Answer:

Hi Hello,

Thank you for the question.

Mumps in the medical realm is called parotitis. This condition occurs when the parotid gland, which is the salivary gland located in the area of ​​the back jaw close to the ear, is inflamed due to a viral infection, especially from the paramyxovirus group. Symptoms can be swollen, painful, and warm around the cheeks that can spread to the jaw and neck. In addition, parotitis sufferers often experience dry mouth, fever, swallowing pain, coughing, runny nose, muscle and joint pain, nausea, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, and many other complaints.

Most viral infections do make the sufferer have certain immunity, so it is not easy to experience similar pain in the future. However, it is not impossible that people who have experienced mumps will again experience the same disease. This is possible especially if your immune system is not good, for example due to stress, malnutrition, fatigue, taking certain drugs, or also experiencing certain diseases (for example HIV, diabetes). This risk will be higher if you have not previously received complete immunization.

However, it should also be understood, that sometimes, mumps symptoms can also be very similar to symptoms of other diseases, such as cellulitis, contact dermatitis, insect bites, dental abscesses, dislocation of jaw joints, mastoiditis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Therefore, if it has not been checked by a doctor, it is better not to rush to conclude that the symptoms that appear are caused by mumps huh ..

I hope this helps.
