Cough Or Flu, The Difference Is Usual With Characteristics Of Corona
Doc, sorry, I want to ask
Thank you for the question.
Coughs and colds that do not heal can occur due to allergies, for example due to contact with cold, pollen, dust mites, and other allergens. Other factors, such as irritation (for example due to exposure to dry air or chemical fumes), aspiration of foreign bodies into the airways, viral infections (including Corona virus) or bacteria, acid reflux, immune disorders, to benign or malignant tumors around the airways can also trigger complaints like this.
Frequently, coughs and colds that occur due to Corona virus infection (or a disease called COVID-19) will appear accompanied by fever, muscle and joint pain, weakness, fatigue, changes in appetite, sore throat, even vomiting and diarrhea. Therefore, if you do not experience these complaints and you are also at low risk of contracting COVID-19 (such as having never been in contact with a sufferer of COVID-19, have not traveled to an area with an outbreak of COVID-19, or have not been in contact with a person of origin from areas with COVID-19 outbreaks), then you should not worry.
Overcome your cough and cold first by using a mask, improving personal hygiene and the environment, avoiding allergens and irritation of the respiratory tract (as mentioned above), exercising regularly, limiting intake of cold and greasy foods and drinks, resting more, and not just carelessly take medicine without doctor's order.
If the complaint does not improve, do not hesitate to check yourself to the doctor or ENT doctor so that it is handled optimally according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
