22 Years Old?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I have a cough, my throat is itchy and has a headache. What are the symptoms of the common cold or what?
Thank you for the question.
Coughing, itching in the throat, and headaches can occur due to many factors, for example allergies, respiratory infections, infections of other organ systems, gastric acid reflux, dry throat, the influence of drugs, gastritis, psychological disorders, and so on. Many factors can cause respiratory infections, ranging from the common cold (caused by influenza virus), COVID-19 (caused by recent and widespread Corona virus), streptococcus, staphylococcus, and so on.
The increasing number of people with COVID-19 can indeed trigger their own concerns. However, judging from your mild symptoms, you should not panic. You can resolve your complaint first by:
Stay at home, don't go out unless it's an emergency
Use a mask
Don't use personal items together with other people
Don't eat cold, oily, and spicy foods
Take paracetamol to ease your headache
Eat lots of fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Don't shout too much
Stay away from cigarettes and smoke, cold, dust, pollution, and other allergens
You need to see yourself directly to the doctor or internist if you experience shortness of breath or severe vomiting, high fever that does not subside in 3 days, or if you have been in contact with people with COVID-19, have traveled and have contact with people who have already traveled to COVID-19 outbreak area.
Hope this helps ...
