Hello God, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading the complaints you describe above, CHAPTER complaints that become more frequent can indeed be caused by yogurt consumption, but if you pay attention to other complaints that you experience, these complaints can also be caused by COVID-19 (despite the history of contact, residence and travel history is unclear), ARI, sore throat, inflammation of the tonsils, common cold, or flu.
Because there is still a possibility that you may have a corona virus infection, it is highly recommended for you:
Stay at home for at least 14 days since complaints are felt and separate from other family members
Wear a mask while the complaint is still present even at home
Maintain a healthy and nutritious food intake every day
Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day
Wash your hands with running water and soap for at least 20 seconds on a regular basis
Get adequate and quality rest every day at least 6-8 hours a day
Exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes every day
Trying to take over-the-counter cold cough medicines in accordance with the recommendations on the packaging
You are also allowed to take vitamin supplements or immune enhancing supplements according to the packaging dose
If you have been taking over-the-counter drugs for at least 3-4 days but have not experienced any improvement, then it is recommended that you consult a doctor directly for evaluation. However, if complaints such as high fever (temperature reaching 38 degrees or more) and shortness of breath, immediately go to the nearest emergency room of the hospital for further assistance.
I hope this helps.
