Distinguish Common Fever With Demma Due To Corona
To distinguish ordinary fever from corona fever, is it necessary to take a body-lowering medicine first?
Thank you for the question.
Fever can indeed be caused not only because of COVID-19 (a disease due to Corona virus infection), but also because of various other reasons, such as:
Other viral or bacterial infections, such as dengue, typhus, ENT infections, dental infections, digestive infections, urinary tract infections Inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus Heat stroke (exposure to excessive heat) Other factors, such as malignancy, drug side effects, hormonal disorders, immune disorders, etc. Distinguishing COVID-19 and various other conditions as mentioned above only by looking at the characteristics of fever is often not easy. Only by consuming heat-lowering drugs will not necessarily make you able to distinguish between these two conditions. Almost all fever, due to any cause, will decrease if given a lowering medication.
But often, fever that arises due to COVID-19 will be accompanied by coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, phlegm, weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, runny nose, even diarrhea. Not only that, to be suspected of having COVID-19, you need to have a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area, contacting people from the COVID-19 outbreak area, or contacting COVID-19 sufferers themselves.
Better, if indeed you have a fever, try to reduce it first by taking the drug Paracetamol. Not only that, multiply also rest, be more diligent in drinking, eat a balanced variety of nutritious foods, do not always exert physical activity too tired, and do not carelessly take other medicines without doctor's advice. If within 3 days the fever does not improve, if symptoms of COVID-19 or other symptoms appear more severe, and if you have a risk of contracting COVID-19, then you should go to see a doctor or doctor of internal medicine for further examination and treatment continue ...
I hope this helps.
