Mumps is a contagious disease. It often attacks children who still haven’t mature immune systems. This virus can spread through saliva and mucus splash. In addition, the use of cutlery contaminated with the virus also can spread mumps virus to other people.

To treat this disease, you can use kembang sepatu (hibiscus). Its antiseptic properties and other contents, such as flavonoids, tannins, saponins, etc. help to cure mumps.

For the purpose, prepare 30 grams of kembang sepatu leaves or flowers and 400 ml of water. Wash the hibiscus leaves or flowers and boil them until there’s about 200 ml water remained. Strain the water and wait until it cools down and ready for consumption.

You can consume the herb 3 times a day until the mumps subside. However, keep in mind, you should consult your doctor immediately if the mumps’ condition didn’t get any better.
