Do you have other symptoms besides pain, such as enlargement on the side of the face, cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat? Have you seen a doctor to determine the cause? A direct examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause of this complaint.

This infection is very contagious, especially occurs in children. Transmission can occur if someone inhales a coughing or sneezing splash from the sufferer or if sharing tableware with the sufferer. Symptoms experienced by sufferers are enlargement of one part of the face, pain when swallowing or chewing, fever, headache, dry mouth, joint pain, fatigue easily, muscle aches, due to poor posture such as when working at a computer or reading a book Because you have contact with mumps sufferers, complaints that you experience may be caused by mumps.
