Cough, Dry Throat And Difficulty In Breathing Is Corona?
I feel a dry cough, but not always but my throat always feels itchy and dry. Are these symptoms of Covid-19? Or because I consume oil? And I also find it a bit difficult to breathe, but a little, is this the effect of my weight being quite fat, or is there anything else doc?
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Coughing is a response in which the body tries to expel foreign matter in the respiratory tract. Coughing can be caused by several diseases, namely respiratory infections, allergies and inflammation due to stomach acid.
A cough caused by respiratory tract infections can be characterized by dry cough or phlegm, runny nose, chest tightness, fever and throat pain. As for cough due to allergies can be characterized by coughing when they encounter allergens, such as dust or weather. For coughs caused by stomach acid in general, it is very often complained of. Because rarely realize that someone is experiencing an increase in stomach acid. If there is an increase in acid it will cause irritation of the esophagus and result in dry itching of the throat and coughing. There is an irritation in the esophagus will get worse if you often consume oily foods, coffee, soda, noodles, spicy and sour.
Based on your complaint, it does not lead to a disease that is endemic, namely covid 19. The covid is safe19 have symptoms, dry cough, sore throat, fever above 37.5 and shortness of breath. But if you have a fever accompanied by shortness of breath, check yourself to the doctor. And if there are no complaints, do self-isolation for 14 days to avoid contracting the corona virus.
And don't forget to wash your hands with soap for every activity, don't touch your face if you haven't washed your hands, take vitamin C regularly.
