Ds1s best friend has been unwell with "probably mumps" for 3 days. Day 1 the swelling was horrendous - 6 inches added onto his face, day 2 less uncomfortable, day 3 almost invisible.

His mum has been avised to keep him out of circulation for 5 days. My children's health book says he is infectious for 2 weeks.

We are all due at a swimming party on day 7. Both he and my boys have had mmr jabs.

Sorry - didn't really ask a question there?

So does anyone know if you can have mumps that disappear in only two days?

His face was soooo swollen that it seems it was mumps, so am I stupid thinking of letting ds1 go swimming with him less than a week later?
