Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you could have the mumps or another viral infection or even the flu or influenza viral infection
you have to see a doctor for blood testing and examination to know what infection you have
you could even have a bacterial infection which might need a course of antibiotics.
do you have a doctor you can see?
or you can go to the ER to see a doctor right away.
