Q.

Mumps

Hi Doc,

There is one case of confirmed mumps at my daughter' s daycare... just curious as to what the beginning symptoms of mumps are and should she get it, is it necessary to take her to the Doc?

Thanks

If your daughter has had the MMR vaccination she has been immunised against mumps. the symptoms are fever and a rather painful swelling of one or both sides of the face
