Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the main symptoms of corona virus infection are fever and cough (especially dry cough). In severe infections, symptoms of shortness of breath can also be found. Symptoms of runny nose and nasal congestion are also not a common symptom found in corona virus infection (although it can be found in children). Therefore a cold that you are experiencing right now might not have anything to do with the corona virus that is spreading right now.
Colds are most often caused by viral infections in the respiratory tract. However, the virus infection will generally disappear and heal by itself in 7-10 days. If your runny nose does not disappear after 7-10 days, then you need to think about other possible causes of your cold, for example:
sinusitis rhinitis allergic rhinitis vasomotor leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (if there is a history of a previous head injury) It is advisable to immediately conduct an examination with an ENT doctor so that you can find out the exact cause of your prolonged runny nose and can be treated according to the cause.
The following are some things you can try to do at this time:
Try to look for triggers for your runny nose and avoid these triggers. Rinse your nose with saline liquid if you also experience nasal congestion. Bath with warm water and breathe water vapor from your bath water. Install a humidifier or air humidifier in your bedroom. Drink more water and rest. and enough sleep (at least 7-9 hours a day)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
