Chills, Runny Nose, Dry Cough, Itchy Throat, And Dizziness, What Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Hello doctor, I last Saturday felt feverish and runny nose, then the week was just runny nose, but not feverish. On Monday, I coughed dry with an itchy throat, until Tuesday, when I woke up, my head felt dizzy, but light. Until now I have not seen a doctor, but I have taken several drugs such as neosep, obh comics, and extra panadol. Are these symptoms including corona symptoms?
Thank you for the question.
Chills, runny nose, dry cough, itchy throat, and dizziness, can be part of the symptoms of COVID-19 (a disease due to Corona virus) or not. Various other viruses and bacteria, when infecting the respiratory tract, often also cause complaints like this. Not only that, allergies, irritations, foreign body entry, acid reflux, gastrointestinal disorders, and so on can also cause complaints as you experience today.
If your complaint has only occurred 1-3 days later, and if you do not have the risk of being affected by COVID-19 (for example after traveling to an area that is experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19, have contact with people from regions that are experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19 , or have had contact with sufferers of COVID-19 itself), then you should not worry. In order for complaints to improve, you can do it first:
Take paracetamol so that the fever and dizziness subsided Expand to rest and drink water Do not always too tired activity Do not consume food and drinks that are cold, oily, artificial sweetness Expand to eat fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C Do not talk or shout excessively No carelessly taking medication Diligent bathing and washing hands Use a mask However, if it has been more than 3 days a complaint appears, if you have a risk of contracting COVID-19, or if there are more severe complaints, such as shortness, high fever, weakness, etc., immediately check with your doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be examined and further treated according to the cause yes ..
I hope this helps.
