Our expert says:
The encephalitis decreased the resilience of your immune system, so you are correct in thinking that it made you more vulnerable to other diseases. You could have picked up the mumps in hospital. The other possibility is that it could have been mumps all along because mumps can also cause encephalitis. To boost your immune system, I suggest a course of Vit B injections, but also enough rest and eating healthy foods. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
