What causes Mumps?

Mumps is usually caused by the mumps virus, which typically spreads from person to persons through saliva that is infected. If one is not immune, they can get the disease by simply breathing in infected saliva drops from an infected person cough or sneeze. By sharing or drinking of the same cups and other utensils, one can contract mumps if the other persons has mumps.

Diagnosis


If your doctor thinks that your child has mumps, a blood test might be needed. Our immune system normally makes antibodies to help fight an infection. If you or your child has mumps, then the blood test will be able to tell if one’s body has begun developing antibodies to fight the mumps virus.
