mumps

I' ve had mumps and it' s the tenth day now. My glands are not swollen any more and I feel just fine, am I still contagious? If yes, than how long and how is it transmitted?

Hi Tamar
One is usually infectious from 3 days before symptoms until 9 days after - it is spread by droplets ( sneezing and coughing) saliva and plegm from the nose.
