Hello. I want to ask my room and father again symptoms of coughing, body fever, chest pain, sore throat, dry aches and coughing, it’s been gone 2 days “.
Hello Deon, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the complaints that you and your father experienced, there are several possible diseases that can be experienced. Some of the diseases that can occur, namely:
Nowadays due to the rise of corona virus infection, surely it will certainly make you and your family panic whether the complaint you feel is a symptom of covid 19 or not. Covid 19 infection has signs and symptoms that are almost the same as the common cold, namely high fever, cough and shortness. To ensure this, a supporting examination must be carried out.
If you and your father or your family do not have a contact history with sick people or especially people with covid 19, or a history of traveling to an area where there is a sufferer, do not have a history of severe previous illnesses (such as diabetes, hypertension, lung disease, cancer, HIV, etc. ) You and your father should rest / isolate themselves at home for approximately 14 days to monitor complaints whether it worsens and leads to symptoms of covid infection 19 or not and so as not to increase the risk of transmission if it turns out to have a corona virus infection. It's best if you do this right now:
Use a mask when you have a cold cough.
Washing hands with soap before and after touching / doing activities.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Avoid traveling to a crowded place / leaving the house if it is not an emergency.
Apply social distancing / self quarantine for 14 days.
Maintain a healthy and nutritious diet, especially fruits and vegetables.
Drink plenty of water.
Consumption of vitamins to increase endurance.
Take your medicine from a doctor regularly and according to the dosage.
If complaints continue and become burdensome, consult a doctor immediately.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
