TOPIC: How long Does it take to see mumps symptoms
One of my boyfriend developed mumps 3 days back. I was out with him for a day. I am worried if I am exposed to mumps. How long does it take to develop symptoms of numps. I also work with children so I am worried that I might cause them mumps.
The infectious period or time that an infected person can transmit mumps to a non-infected person is from 3 days before symptoms appear to about 9 days after the symptoms appear.
So if it is already tree days, you might see symptoms in one or two days.
Mumps is EXCEPTIONALLY rare nowadays. Are you not vaccinated.
