Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sore throat (pharyngitis) is one of the most common triggers for coughing, fever, colds and sore throat complaints. This condition can be triggered by various factors, but the most common is due to a viral or bacterial infection. In addition, several other factors as mentioned below can also trigger pharyngitis:
Allergies, for example due to dust, pollen, mites Dry throat, for example due to accustomed to breathing through the mouth, being in an air-conditioned environment or using a fan for too long Irritations, for example from inhaling cigarette smoke, chewing spicy and oily food, consuming alcohol Strep throat muscles Excessive conditions, for example in singers or screaming people Reflux (back flow) of stomach acid Tumors (for example, throat tumors, laryngeal tumors), etc. If your complaints are more often accompanied by fever or when exposed to dust and wind, then most likely infections and allergies that underlie your complaints. However, it is also possible that your complaint occurs due to other triggers as mentioned above. Coughs often do heal in a longer time than the disease itself. This is also influenced by the lack of rest, improper diet, decreased immune system, and treatment that is being undertaken.
You can go to the doctor directly if the cough you experience persists for more than 2 weeks, or if your complaint is accompanied by fever, shortness of breath, and bloody phlegm. If the condition is considered severe enough, the doctor can also direct you to undergo X-rays (X-rays), blood tests, sputum tests, and so on. For coughs caused by infections, doctors will generally give you treatment in the form of antibiotics or other medicines according to the complaints that arise. However, if a different cause is suspected, the treatment given can be different.
So that your cough and other complaints do not always recur, you should take the following steps:
Stay away from cigarettes Wear a nose mask when in a dirty and polluted environment Maintain your immune system by eating nutritious foods, exercising diligently, and getting enough sleep Reduce greasy foods, which are too cold, and which contain a lot of artificial sweeteners. Drink more If you have a fever, you can first take paracetamol to relieve it. Hopefully it helps ...
