Hello Gesha Liem ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Allergies are reactions of the body's immune system to certain objects, the reactions caused are also different from mild to severe. Someone can allergic to anything, can be due to weather, smoke or dust, food, objects to certain drugs.
Symptoms caused by a person suffering from dust allergy depend on the mild severity of the allergy, on mild dust allergy, symptoms caused in the form of colds, reddish eyes, watery eyes to sneezing. In severe dust allergies, sneezing is felt continuously, coughing, nasal congestion, shortness of breath until a severe asthma attack.
In people who are allergic to cold weather complaints are usually caused no different, sometimes accompanied by reddish skin.
So far there is no drug that can really eliminate complaints of allergies to the weather or dust, but the way to minimize the emergence of complaints is to avoid triggering factors such as protecting the skin from sudden changes in temperature, for example wearing a jacket when the weather changes to be cold, consumption of anti-allergic drugs or antihistamines according to doctor's advice, create a clean environment, wash sheets, blankets and curtains with temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius to avoid mites, use protective masks when leaving the house, to minimize exposure to dust. To find out exactly what allergy you are experiencing, you can also do an allergy test, and immediately see a doctor if your complaint is accompanied by difficulty breathing, even while you are sleeping, in order to get appropriate treatment.
But in a situation where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if it is not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, don't forget to wash your hands especially when you want to hold the face area (eyes, nose and mouth), if there is a complaint such as a sore throat that feels worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by a fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius, a cough, a cold that does not heal despite taking the medicine, until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though it is already try to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further tests.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
