    Mumps normally last for 10-12 days depending from person person,
    nonaspirin fever medications as they can bring down the pain, check with your doctor first
    In some Asian countries they actually apply a bit of garden soil to the area, from experience I have seen that healig the area faster than any medication tried. I had these, pretty severe when I was in Pakistan for one year
