Coughing Up Phlegm For 6 Days With Flu, Is It Possible That The Symptoms Of Corona Virus?
Morning, I experienced coughing up phlegm from 6 days ago but starting from yesterday it has started to subside, I also have the flu from Tuesday but now it is getting better. My question is whether there might be symptoms of COVID-19?
Thank you for the question.
Phlegm cough and cold can be a symptom of COVID-19 (Corona's disease), it may or may not. Apart from COVID-19, coughs and colds can also occur due to a variety of other reasons, for example:
Other viral or bacterial infections, such as influenza, streptococcus, staphylococcus Allergy, such as cold, dust mites, pollen, animal hair Irritations, such as dry air, chemical fumes, oily food Other foreign aspirations, such as benign or malignant tumors, immune disorders, gastric acid reflux, drug effects, etc. The question now, have you had contact with people with COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks? Have you ever traveled to an area that reported local COVID-19 transmissions? Or have you ever come in contact with people from other regions who report local transmission of COVID-19?
If not, then your risk of contracting COVID-19 is actually very small. So, most likely your condition arises because of other reasons. Better, you first resolve your complaint by:
Adequate and regular sleep Do not contact with substances that might cause allergies or irritation. Use a mask. Use a humidifier water in your place of activity. Don't smoke. Take a shower and wash your hands with soap and clean running water. , but do not be too cold, greasy, and sweetness made diligently exercise to increase endurance However, if within 3 days your complaints do not improve, or if you experience fever, shortness of breath, vomiting, and other complaints that are more severe, more either you check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor so it is clear what is the best treatment that needs to be done in order to resolve your complaint huh ..
I hope this helps.
