What are the mumps? Mumps is a contagious disease caused by a virus. It spreads easily through coughing and sneezing. There is no cure for mumps, and it can cause long term health problems inspite of the vaccine. Some people with mumps may have no symptoms at all. Others feel sick but don't have swollen glands.

03/29/2013

As you may be aware, several cases of the mumps have been confirmed at local univerisities in Richmond, VA. However, we have NOT seen any cases here on our campus. If you expierence any of the following sympotoms please come to Student Health immediately or see your healthcare provider and report the findings to our office.
The most common symptoms include: Fever, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, swollen and tender salivary glands under the ears on one or both sides. Symptoms typically appear 16-18 days after infection, but this period can range from 12-25 days after infection.

Dehydration Treatment: Sipping small amounts of water, drinking carbohydrate/electrolyte-containing drinks such as Gatorade, sucking on popsicles made from juices and sports drinks, and sucking on ice chips. Try to cool the person, if there has been heat exposure or if the person has an elevated temperature in the following ways: Remove any excess clothing and loosen other clothing, air conditioned areas are best for return body temperature to normal and break the heat exposure cycle. If air condition is not available, increase cooling by ev***ration by placing the person near fans or in the shade if outside. Place a wet towel around the person. Avoid exposing skin to excessive cold, such as ice packs or ice water. This can cause the blood vessels in the skin to constrict and will decrease rather than increase heat loss. Exposure to excessive cold can also cause shivering, which will increase body temperature-the opposite effect you're trying to achieve.

Signs and Symptoms of Dehydration range from minor to severe and include: Increased thrist, dry mouth and swollen tongue, weakness, dizziness, palpitations, confusion, sluggishness, fainting, inability to sweat and decreased urine output. Urine color may indicate dehydration. If urine is concentrated and deeply yellow or amber, you may be dehydrated.

Dehydration: Dehydration is a condition that occurs when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in. With dehydration, more water is moving out of our cells and then out of our bodies than the amount of water we take in through drinking. We lose water every day in the form of water v***r in the breath we exhale and as water in our sweat, urine, and stool. Along with the water, small amounts of salts are also lost. When we lose too much water, our bodies may become out of balance or dehydrated. Severe dehydration can lead to death.
