Q:

My son is 9 months old though we gave him vaccination for MMR but unfortunately he has got Mumps . I have checked with my doctor and confirmed. Doctor mentioned that usually vaccination take 1 and half months for activation .
Wanted to know what care should one take in such situations. And what symptoms should one look for any immediate medication .

Hi
Medications should be prescribed by your doctor. Talk and get a basic paracetamol prescription.
The kid may suffer pain while eating, throat congestion. Give lots of fluids. As much as possible, offer no spicy, bland foods. Include ajwain, tulsi, garlic, turmeric, asafoetida to reduce inflammation
