Mullein Tea - Apply a cloth soaked in mullein tea to the affected areas. This will help to combat with swelling.

Margosa Leaves - Margosa Leaves act as a good herbal treatment for mumps. Make powdered form of margosa leaves and mix it with haldi and make a paste of it. This should be applied externally over the affected parts by mumps. This will help you cure mumps fast.

Some tips during the period - when patient is suffering from mumps:

  • A child suffering from mumps should not be sent to school for at least 7 to 10 days after symptoms begin, as he or she is considered contagious during that period - and will infect other children also in the school.
  • The patient should be given soft foods to eat.
  • Avoid Acidic Drinks - Acidic foods and beverages such as citrus or tomato products increase saliva flow. The more saliva flows, the more it's going to hurt. So, it's better if the child drinks just non acidic fluids such as water or milk.
