Cough Accompanied By Sputum Whether Corona Virus Infection?
Hello, I have a cough that sometimes comes out of phlegm and sometimes does not come out is it affected by Corona virus? Corona is another symptom that is not in me but is it affected by Corona virus?
Thank you for the question.
Corona virus infection (SARS-CoV 2) indeed often not only causes coughing and phlegm throat, but also causes fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle and joint pain, and other more severe symptoms. If that's the only complaint you experience, your complaint is more likely to arise due to infection by a virus or other bacteria. In addition, allergies, irritation, aspiration of foreign bodies, reflux of stomach acid into the throat, even the side effects of medications can also cause coughing and phlegm phlegm.
So that your complaints are resolved, you try to drink more warm water first, may also add ginger and lemon juice. Not only that, you also need to first limit the consumption of foods and drinks that are cold, oily, spicy, and artificial sweetness. So that the body's immune system is still good, first limit excessive physical activity, get enough sleep, take time to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, do not smoke, and don't also take medication carelessly.
If within 3 days your complaint does not improve, or chest pain, vomiting, wheezing, and a more severe complaint as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check with your doctor, ENT doctor, or internist in order to receive further treatment. yes..
I hope this helps.
