Dear Kerry

Thank you for visiting

It is possible that you have mumps. If you experience pain and discomfort when drinking red wine, eating something sour, you definately have mumps. There is no definate treatment for mumps, except bed rest and anti-inflammatory medication.

Kind regards

My son of 11 has a swelling on the upper left jaw bone. He has a headache but no nausea, no throut or ear infection. His teeth seem fine and he can still eat, but has pain when he opens his mouth. The swelling has increased, but not like a swollen gland.
