The Mumps virus spreads from person to person through the air. While it is contagious, it is less so than chicken pox and measles. Symptoms of the Mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, feeling tired, and loss of appetite; however, the most classic sign is parotitis, or the swelling and tenderness of the salivary glands located under the ears or jaw on one or both sides of the face. The vaccine for the Mumps is combined with the vaccination for measles and rubella, called the MMR. For more information on Mumps, check out the following links:
