Mumps

Hi,

I was in contact with a friend on Saturday who had mumps. She had no swelling anymore and had been diagnosed on the Friday of the previous week - so she had had it for about a week.
Would she still have been contagious to others?

Thanks.

Dear Michelle
She may still be - it is contagious 3 days before the swelling begins to about 9 days afterwards.
