continue on paracetamol or acetaminophen or ibuprofen syrup every 8 hours to relieve the fever and pain you can apply ice packs on the swollen glands make sure your son drinks a plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration stick to soft and easy swallowed food as soup, yogurt avoid acidic or hard food no need for antibiotics as mumps is caused by a virus be careful as mumps is contagious for about 1 week following the diagnosis
