This form of disease comes on with a swelling, sometimes on one and sometimes on both sides of the face and neck, at or near the angle of the jaws. The glands begin to swell and continue to enlarge until the fourth day, when the swelling declines, and in a few days is entirely gone.

Some danger attends this form of disease when the patient takes cold, transferring the swelling to the breasts of females and testicles of males.

Treatment

But little if any medicine is required in this form of disease unless the patient take cold, in which case a full course of medicine should be administered, repeated as often as the nature of the case requires.
