This is a contagious disease, consisting in an inflammation of the
Parotid gland. There is, at first, a sense of stiffness and soreness on
moving the jaw, soon after the gland begins to swell, and continues to
be sore and painful, with more or less headache, and general fever for
from six to eight days. It is not ordinarily a dangerous disease, unless
translated to some other part. It may remove from the original seat to
the brain, the testicles, or in females to the breasts.


TREATMENT.

_Mercurius_ should be given three times a day during the attack. If the
brain becomes affected, use _Bell._ and _Apis mel._ in alternation.
Should it recede to the testicles, or to the female breasts, _Apis mel._
is _the_ remedy. _Mercurius_ may be used in connection with the _Apis_
as soon as the violent symptoms have subsided, in order to prevent
permanent glandular swellings.
