Before the mumps vaccine was introduced in the United States, mumps was common among infants, children and young adults. Today, most people have been vaccinated, so mumps has become rare in the United States.
Currently, there is no specific treatment for mumps. Supportive care should be given as needed. If someone becomes very ill, he/she should seek medical attention. If someone seeks medical attention, he/she should call the doctor in advance so that they don't have to sit in the waiting room for a long time and possibly infect other patients.
