Should I have a blood test?? Thank you
Hi AyuFrida, thanks for the question.
A cold if felt for a long time will certainly interfere with daily activities because of the uncomfortable feeling. Colds are often accompanied by other symptoms. Several conditions may underlie Ayu's complaint, including:
Colds, which are mild infections of the nose, sinuses, throat due to infection with the Influenza virus or the flu. Symptoms are caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory system Acute sinusitis, namely inflammation of the cavity (sinuses) around the nose. Can cause nasal congestion, accompanied by pain in the forehead or cheek that radiates Non-allergic rhinitis, namely inflammation and irritation of the mucous membranes inside the nose Migraine headaches, if the pain is only felt on one side and feels throbbing Tension headaches, if painful felt like tension, tied in the forehead to the neck area, and so on
Because the symptoms have been going on for 1 month and there are many underlying medical conditions, Ayu should consult a doctor immediately. The doctor will conduct questions and answers, physical examination and support if needed. Blood tests should not be done without a doctor's indication (because they may not be needed for diagnostics). Based on this information, the doctor will provide the appropriate treatment. Tips that can be done, namely:
Adequate rest Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water per day, warm drinks are recommended Manage stress Eat nutritious food Wash your nose with normal saline or salt water Inhale warm steam if the nose is blocked Pain relievers, such as paracetamol, can be taken to relieve congestion temporary
May be useful.
