HSE confirms 18 new cases of Mumps in North-West as illness spreads

first_imgThe HSE has reported a “sharp rise” in the number of cases of Mumps following an outbreak of the illness in the Nort-West including Donegal.A total of 18 cases of the contagious condition have been reported this week alone since Monday.This brings the total number of cases in the North West so far this year to 93. A spokesman for the HSE confirmed “These have been mainly in the South Donegal and Sligo town area, but we have also had a few cases from North Donegal.“All children and young adults should have two MMR doses, which protects against Mumps, Measles and Rubella. Protection for Rubella is important for women in the childbearing years.”There has also been a major outbreak of Measles in Co Donegal in recent weeks.Dr Anthony Breslin said “the recent cases of Measles and Mumps in the North West demonstrate what can happen when MMR vaccine rates fall”. Mumps is an acute viral infection that is spread from person to person. It is a potentially serious disease for children and young adults and is very common in young children who are not vaccinated against it.Mumps usually occurs in school-aged children, teenagers or young adults, although older people may also contract the disease.Symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, malaise and swollen, tender salivary glands (usually the parotid gland which is located just below the front of the ear).Mumps often gives the appearance of swollen cheeks or jaw. Symptoms of mumps typically begin to appear 14 to 25 days (usually 15-18 days) after exposure. Symptoms tend to decrease after one week and have usually resolved after 10 days. There is no specific treatment for mumps apart from relieving the symptoms.A HSE spokesperson added “Mumps is spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing and by direct contact with saliva or discharges from the nose and throat of infected individuals. People infected with mumps may spread the infection to others, even when they do not have any symptoms. People with mumps are most infectious from 2 days before to 5 days after onset of symptoms. “Complications of mumps include testicular inflammation, ovarian inflammation, meningitis, pancreatitis and rarely encephalitis (brain inflammation) or deafness. Although testicular inflammation occurs in up to 40% of postpubertal males, fortunately sterility is rare.”Anyone who develops mumps should stay at home for 5 days after disease onset to prevent spreading the infection to others. If your child develops the symptoms of mumps please contact your GP (please ring your GP first).HSE confirms 18 new cases of Mumps in North-West as illness spreads was last modified: April 1st, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalHSEMeaslesMumpslast_img read more
