I have parotitis and my throat hurts like hell. What to do?


I have Parotitis and my throat hurts like hell. And the pills don't seem to be having any effect upon it. Does anyone know anything that would work? I ate some honey, but it still hurts a lot.
----------

hot tea is a temp fix with honey~ Or Popsicles are nice too!  (+ info)

Why is there a hard round Lump right under my left Ear, it's like Mumps/parotitis but I had that already.. ?


I'll go to doc in 3 hours but Does anyone know what it could be ?

Is it more likely to be an ear infection or a throat-related infection ?

It's just like the lump that hurts pretty much :(
----------

I had that before. It sounds like a swollen lymph node. I just took antibiotics that my doc. prescribed to me. G'luck.  (+ info)

whats the difference between Parotitis and Mononucleosis (aka Mono)?


Parotitis is an infection of the parotid glands.

Mono is a systemic viral infection.  (+ info)

parotitis? Mumps? pain in testicles?


I have got parotitis -mumps-, my face looks nice now.

I have a little pain in one of my testicles and thing is that i have been told that mumps can cause infertility...

I started to feel the pain, well, it is not painfull at all, but i started to feel this when i went to the shop... then i have been told that when u have mupms u have to stay on bed ALL the time, u can not go out for a walk or lift heavy things.

i am so worry... doctor only gave me antibiotics.

THANKS!!!!
Thanks for your answers, people.

Now, i forgot to say that the doctor never said it was mumps but just an infection in my submandibular gland.
----------

if the doctor didn't say you had mumps then you probably haven't got them, and yes they can cause infertility in men.

if he said you have an sub mandibular infection the gland will be up and painful as they are there to catch and fight the infection. that is also why the are painful they are linked to the lymph glands, and are in the throat, armpit and groin area. probably causing the pain to the testicles. the antibiotics will clear this up returning you to normal in about a week.

if after 1 week of the antibiotics you are still feeling unwell i would advise you to return to your GP for another consultation.  (+ info)

Parotitis/Mumps Help Please?!?


About a week ago, I developed an inflamed saliva gland, that the Dr. classed as Parotitis/Mumps, and to go back if it got worse.
Originally it was just the neck, but it has spread to around my ear/partially on the face, any help please?
What is it? Tumour? Cancer?
----------

Your GP is the one who actually examined you and his diagnosis may well be correct. Since the percentage levels of MMR vaccine cover have fallen over the last 10 years, cases of mumps in 20+ year olds have also become increasingly common, even in the immunised.  (+ info)

Parotitis/Mumps question... swelling one side of jaw.. but AGAIN!?


Last week I went to the doctors and he said I have either Parotitis or Mumps.. on my Right Jaw area only, it swelled up on this side and has just started to die down, which im happy about... however what im really concerned about is only just now on the 7th day or so my left jaw has started to go swelled ever so slightly and i'm nervous it will swell up like the right jaw did.... my non-swollen side of my jaw has become sensitive to the touch and slightly bigger on the gland and i really don't wanna go through another 7 days of another swollen jaw right after the original was just starting to heal, do you think i may be semi-immune now or may the exact same thing happen? I just don't understand why they wouldnt both swell up at the same time instead of one after the other

any opinions would be welcome!!
----------

mine did the same thing!!!;; I was 24 y/o @ the time;; what a damper!! good luck;; once it's over, it's over, surprised the doc didn't tell ya  (+ info)

Yes it is possible to get mumps even after vaccination but it will be less severe and prevent complications like going sterile.  (+ info)

i was diagnosed with parotitis and given antibiotics,I am now on my 3 different medicine and my symptoms have?


not improved,when putting anything with flavor in my mouth the pain is very intense for the first 3 or 4 mouthfuls,now Iam experiencing severe pain a couple of minutes after Ive eaten the pain is now feeling very sharp and is traveling not only in my glands but towards my ear.I am very concerned and have seen a an ear,nose and throat specialist who put me on another medication its been 4 days and nothing has changed,I believe I need some kind of imaging or test to find whats going on,its been going on for 6wks now.
----------

You probably have a small 'stone' impacted in your Stensons Duct, which connects the parotid to the inside of the mouth. Periodic contractions of the inflamed gland,after eating, will cause the duct, proximal to the 'stone', to over-constrict and cause the type of discomfort you mentioned.Imaging technology should pick it up and a good ENT doc can remove it.  (+ info)

Odd stomach burning and pain for 2 days...?


I've been taking naproxen and vicodin because I have parotitis.
I take the vicodin for back pain and have been taking about 2 every 7 hours, and 2 naproxen every 12 hours.

I got a stomach burning sensation about 2 days ago thats still here. Should I see a doctor? Drink pepto bismol? Could it be acid reflux..?
----------

The burning in your stomach could be an ulcer or the start of one.
Probably caused by the naproxen. This needs to be stopped.
Tramadol is a synthetic drug that will not cause addiction or mood swings just takes away the pain.  (+ info)
