Thank you for the question.
Coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and slight tightness are likely to indicate that your airway is disturbed, for example due to allergies (such as after contact with dust, cold, pollen), irritation (such as exposure to smoke or dry air), infection (such as due to viruses or bacteria, including Corona viruses), bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, and so on.
Referring to your description of having experienced bronchitis and asthma, it is likely that your current complaint is also related to the condition. In addition, also because of the influence of dust in contact with you before.
If the tightness that appears mild, does not appear high fever more than 3 days, chills, weakness, or other complaints that are more severe, you should not worry. Provided that you have never had contact with a patient or suspect of COVID-19 (a disease due to the new Corona virus), you also should not rush to see a doctor. Safer, you first resolve your complaint at home with the following steps:
Use a mask while still coughing, sneezing, and runny nose. No more contact with dust, allergens and other irritants as we mentioned above. Don't use excessive air conditioning and fan, use air humidifier if possible. Don't smoke. Get plenty of rest at home. Drink plenty of water. warm and eat foods that are made with warm broth. Don't consume too much cold food, especially oily and artificial sweets. Don't just take any medication that is not an over-the-counter medicine (such as the medicine you call) if it is not prescribed directly by your doctor. worsening, and if you feel you have ever come in close contact with a patient or suspect of COVID-19, you can see yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be handled well, yes.
I hope this helps.
