Often associated with Staphylococcus aureus. Parotitis is an inflammation of one or both parotid glands. There are a number of causes, but the clinical picture remains broadly similar.
EMP Herbal Remedy for Mumps
Acute bacterial parotitis - This is an acute inflammatory response to bacterial infection which causes erythema (redness), pain, swelling and tenderness over the gland on the side of the cheek along with the appearance of pus from the opening of the duct on the inside of the cheek. It was previously common in dehydrated and debilitated patients, often in the postoperative period, but is now more commonly seen after radiotherapy or in patients with a compromised immune system.
Chronic recurrent parotitis - This refers to repeated episodes of discomfort and swelling of the parotid gland often after eating. It is caused by decreased flow of saliva often secondary to either blockage of the duct by a stone or the formation of a duct stricture (narrowing).
Viral parotitis - The commonest viral cause of parotitis is mumps. It usually affects 4 to 10 year olds and causes painful swelling of both parotid glands.
Recurrent parotitis in children - This condition is thought to be due to distension or ballooning of the ducts. It results in the same symptoms as acute bacterial parotitis. It is usually caused by bacteria called streptococci and treated using penicillin.
Tuberculosis - The parotid glands may become infected with the same bacteria causing tuberculosis or 'TB'.
The clinical symptoms include:
- Painful swelling of parotid gland
- Decreased salivary flow
Produce purulent discharge from Stensen's duct (located over opposite site of upper second molar) when ipsilateral parotid gland was massaged
Herbal treatment designed to control infection, stop pain and improve symptoms, correct imbalance and adjust immune system, prevent and treat later diseases and/or complications, prevent relapse, and most importantly, to boost energy and strong body for better health and quality of life.
The purpose of herbal treatment is not to take the place of necessary orthodox medical treatment. Combination of the both is a better choice.
