Cough Accompanied By A Sore Throat And Fever?
Hello, My name is Vera, my age is 21 from Bengkulu City, I have had 3 days with a sore throat, and I have been coughing for 2 days during Friday night, my body is rather hot, why is that? or what? The fear is hit by a virus that is spreading almost all over the world … Thank you in advance …
Hello Vera, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Read the complaints that you experience, these complaints can indeed be caused by a viral infection that is being excited, especially if it really meets the diagnostic criteria set by WHO and is proven laboratory, if not, the diagnosis of this infection will not be established and for its spread in Indonesia has yet to be discovered, so there are not as many considerations in the direction of virus infection as other infections that can cause similar complaints. Complaints like you can be caused by other conditions such as ARI, throat infection, bronchitis, or influenza.
Because your complaint has only been felt for 3 days, to overcome the complaint you are still allowed to take over-the-counter fever and cough medicines to reduce the complaints that you experience. However, if your complaint does not improve for 5-7 days, it gets worse or is accompanied by other complaints such as high fever (temperature reaches 38 degrees or more), vomiting, shortness of breath, difficulty eating or decreased consciousness immediately consult a doctor or emergency room hospital (only if severe complaints arise).
Besides trying to take medicine, you are also advised to:
Maintaining adequate and balanced nutritious food intake every day, and consumption of foods that are soft and easily digested in advance such as porridge, pudding, rice team etc. Increase white water intake, at least 8 glasses a day, can use warm water or cold water depending at your convenience Get adequate rest every day at least 6-8 hours per day Avoiding stress Doing exercise regularly and regularly at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes each time Hopefully it helps.
