Mumps or Parotitis
What is Mumps or Parotitis
Mumps or parotitis is a contagious viral infectious disease that affects the salivary glands It is caused by a paramyxovirus. The most commonly affected gland is the parotid gland. There are 3 pairs of salivary glands situated in the face. These 3 salivary glands are the parotid gland, the sublingual gland and the submandibular gland. All these glands have an opening or a duct opening into the mouth The parotid gland is situated just below and slightly in front of our ears. That is why the most common symptom of mumps is swelling just below and around the ear.
Homeopathic treatment of Mumps
Homeopathic treatment of mumps is vastly superior to allopathic treatment This is because the homeopathic medicines aid the natural immunity to fight the infection itselfand notjust provide symptomatic relief. The natural immunity of the body which has been overwhelmed by the paramyxovirus is strengthened and it is able to fend off the infection much more quickly.
