Can I Drink Coffee During The Flu?
do you drink coffee when you have a cold?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically when you have a fever, runny nose, and sneezing, you will be advised to drink more fluids to avoid dehydration. People who have a fever, discharge from the body will also increase (through breathing, runny discharge, evaporation of fluid through the skin, etc.). Therefore consumption of drinks that are diuretic (triggering urine output) is not recommended because it will aggravate and increase the risk of dehydration. Examples of drinks that are diuretic are coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol. In addition, coffee can cause you to become more restless and have trouble sleeping, while when you are sick, you are strongly advised to get enough sleep and rest to help speed up your body's recovery.
In the current viral pandemic, people who have a fever accompanied by symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections are required to do self-isolation at home. You should not go outside the house at all unless you are really forced (for example you have to go to the doctor) and you also have to separate yourself from the people in your house. You should sleep in your own room and minimize contact with people in your home. Use a mask all the time (because you are sick you are recommended to use a mask), wash your hands with soap as often as possible and advise people in your home to do the same. Do not share food from the same plate with others and do not use cutlery together. Take care of your health and endurance by sleeping and getting enough rest, eating and drinking enough, and avoiding smoking. If you feel your fever does not subside, you experience coughing and shortness of breath, call 119 ext 9 to find out more about the corona virus examination path.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
