The nosode of Mumps.
Parotidinum has been used as a prophylactic against infection by mumps.
In this instance it is generally given in the 6th or 30th two or three times a day to those exposed to infection.
In the disease itself it may be given every four hours, either by itself or alternated with other indicated remedies.
The well-known complications which sometimes occur with mumps, cerebral inflammation and orchitis suggest its possible use in these conditions.
