Fever Accompanied By Coughing And Runny Nose. Are There Any Signs Of Corona?
I have a fever, at first 2 days ago when I woke up, my body was burning hot for no reason, and the next day I started coughing a little, and my nose was like a cold, but not slimy and only slightly sneezing, before I would sample blood the next day, I want to know whether I have been exposed to COVID-19 or symptoms of ordinary fever?
Thank you Haikal, for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Corona virus is a large family of viruses that cause diseases ranging from mild to severe symptoms. No Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new type of virus that has never been identified before in humans, first discovered in Wuhan, China.
In general, the symptoms of corona virus disease can be ulema, coughing and shortness of breath, coupled with a history of traveling 1-2 weeks prior to an area affected by a corona virus outbreak, or making contact with people suffering from corona infection. To distinguish corona infection from other diseases, additional tests such as blood or x-rays need to be done. In severe cases it can cause pneumonia, acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Symptoms experienced by you such as fever, cough, runny nose can be caused by:
- Flu: is an infection caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory tract. Symptoms include fever, headache, nasal congestion, cough and runny nose.
- Rhinitis: is inflammation that occurs in the nasal cavity. Symptoms include nasal congestion, runny nose, headache, fever.
But to ensure that complaints are experienced, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will do a physical examination and maybe additional examinations such as blood tests. If you experience complaints of high fever, cough with phlegm, shortness of breath immediately take it to the hospital to get further treatment.
At present things that can be done are adequate rest, wear a mask if you want to leave the house, use a mouth cover if you want to sneeze or cough, wash your hands before eating.
Hope this helps, thank you.
