Distinguish Common Cough With Cough Symptoms Of Corona
Good night doc, I just recently coughed doc, dry cough. no shortness of breath, flu, even fever. my body temperature every day I check is always normal. and I also have not been hanging out for 2 weeks or in a place that is too crowded. only once to the convenience store to buy food, and there I also use a mask and often use hansanitizer. and I’m actually the type of person who rarely coughs when I’m not tired. these days I always stay up late, and jetlag at bedtime, lacking vegetables too, only taking vitamins. according to the doctor, is this possible so I have been exposed to the virus huh doc? I’m a little paranoid, because I’m afraid of causing danger to those around me, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I understand the concern that you experience, do not be a paranoid person we may be vigilant but do not panic even to the stress because of the corona virus outbreak, because it will cause mental disorders due to fear and panic about this. indeed cough complaints is one of the symptoms of the corona virus but it is not specific, to turn it off it must be checked, but if the symptoms are mild only cough you don't need to do an examination, just isolate yourself at home especially if you are experiencing a cough because it can spread the virus to people other because we do not know what viruses attack us, because covid 19 can also not cause symptoms. so it's better to isolate yourself at home without having to see a doctor. avoid going outside and using masks both outside and at home. but this can be caused by just a normal cough.
Coughing is the body's reaction to foreign objects that enter the respiratory system. Apart from being a response to the entry of foreign objects into the respiratory tract, coughing can also be a symptom of a particular disease. Dry cough, where phlegm is not widely produced or even there is no phlegm at all, the urge to cough is generally due to itching in the throat. There are several possible causes of dry cough including:
allergic: When the body reacts to allergens (allergens) that enter the respiratory tract, coughing occurs to expel the substance
gastric acid: Gastric acid disease (GERD), occurs when stomach acid rises to the esophagus or esophagus. This raised stomach acid then irritates the esophagus and triggers the cough reflex.
asthma: Asthma can trigger cough with phlegm, but more often cause dry cough. This is because the respiratory tract swells and narrows making breathing difficult.
viral infections such as flu
delay to see a doctor you can do several things at home:
stay at home, don't leave the house
consume plenty of warm water at least 2 liters a day
You can consume peremen to relieve throat
You can drink honey mixed with lemon or drink hanged ginger
breathe warm steam mixed with essential oil or eucalyptus oil
bask in the morning at 10 for 15 minutes
adequate rest avoid staying up late sleeping around 7-9 hours a day
avoid stress Doing regular exercise or can do meditation or yoga at home
do something fun while isolating yourself at home
if the cough that you experience does not improve for more than 2 weeks or is getting heavier accompanied by shortness of breath you can immediately go to the doctor to do the examination and get treatment remember to go to the doctor when the symptoms get heavy like high fever and shortness of breath or coughing up blood. in order to break the chain of transmission of the virus.
Thus the info that I can share
