Hello 100% OTAKU,
Thank you for the question.
Based on your complaint, here are some possible causes of the complaint, namely:
Covid-19. Check your risk of covid-19 infection on this page.
In a time when there is an outbreak of covid-19 now, although your complaint could originate from respiratory disorders as mentioned above, the possibility of being infected with covid-19 must still be considered. Therefore, if you have a mild complaint, you should isolate yourself at home for 14 days without physical contact from others, at least 1 meter away from other people, to reduce the risk of transmission of infection. Contact the nearest doctor or covid-19 referral hospital if worsening symptoms occur such as very severe shortness of breath and high fever (more than 38 degrees Celsius) that does not decrease with heat-reducing medication.
Here's what you can do to reduce complaints:
Take headache and throat pain relievers like paracetamol. To treat shortness of breath, you can take bronchodilators which can be obtained by prescription from a doctor.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or sanitizer.
Drink warm water and reduce spicy / sweet / oily food to relieve sore throat.
Take vitamin supplements to maintain immunity, and consume spicy drinks.
Fulfilling nutrition needs and 2-3 liters of water per day.
Manage stress well.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
