Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you have concern regarding mumps. First, mumps are caused by a virus, so taking Amoxicillin is not beneficial. You could have mumps which presents with difficulty chewing, fever, fatigue and facial pain. You may also have a blockage in the duct of the parotid gland that would cause similar symptoms. If there is a blockage, then the treatment is medication for pain, increased fluids and sucking on lemons or citrus hard candy. May I suggest you visit your doctor to see what is causing your facial pain and stop the Amoxicillin.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
