I can understand your concern. Mumps is a viral infection of the parotid gland. Usually, viral infections are not treated with medications and only supportive therapy such as with analgesics is given.

The infection resolves itself in 7-10 days as body's immunity takes over. Thus, I would advise you to continue with the treatment given and give it some time to heal as it will heal on its own.

I hope this information helps you. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic. I wish your daughter feels better soon.
