What is the treatment of mumps in children?

Quoting from the web internet link shown:

Lifestyle and home remedies If you or your child has mumps, time and rest are the best treatments. There's little your doctor can do to speed recovery. But you can take some steps to ease pain and discomfort and keep others from becoming infected.
  • Rest in bed until the fever goes away.
  • Isolate yourself or your child to prevent spreading the disease to others. Someone with mumps may be contagious up to a week after the onset of signs and symptoms.
  • Take over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory **** such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) to ease symptoms. Adults may also use aspirin. Use caution when giving aspirin to children or teenagers. Children and teenagers recovering from flu-like symptoms should never take aspirin. This is because aspirin has been linked to Reye's syndrome, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, in such children.
  • Use a warm or cold compress to ease the pain of swollen glands.
  • For boys, wear an athletic supporter and use cold compresses to ease the pain of tender testi***.
  • Avoid foods that require lots of chewing. Instead, try broth-based soups or soft foods, such as mashed potatoes or cooked oatmeal, for nourishment.
  • Avoid sour foods, such as citrus fruits or juices, which stimulate saliva production.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
If your child has mumps, watch for complications. Call your doctor if your child develops:
  • Fever of 103 F (39 C) or greater
  • Trouble eating or drinking
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Abdominal pain

Can I take naproxen & co Codamol together?

Do not take with anything else containing paracetamol, such as cold and flu treatments, co-codamol, or co-dydramol, as this will result in taking more than the recommended maximum daily dose of paracetamol. Examples include ibuprofen (NurofenĀ®), diclofenac (VoltarolĀ®), naproxen, meloxicam, indometacin and piroxicam.

Voltaren is a sleeping pill right

No. Voltaren (diclofenac) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This medicine works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation.

Voltaren is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.

Vizio LCD 47" switching channels takes very long

Has it always done this since you purchased it? Check the response time online for that TV, it may just be that it is a model with poor response time when changing channels. I've seen some value brand TVs that seem to take a full second or more to switch and go blue/black in between while switching.

Very painful to channel surf like that, so if you have a cable box etc hooked up use that for surfing channels instead if you can't handle the wait.
