Fever Accompanied By Sore Throat, Cough And Runny Nose?
Hello doctor .. I am 15 years old. Since 2 days ago I suddenly had a sore throat and a high fever so I could not sleep. Until today it hasn’t let up. The fever always comes again despite taking medicine. I did come home from school always getting rained or cold … Since yesterday it turned out that I was attacked by symptoms of a cold and cough. How to alleviate these three complaints?
Hello Afina Fadhilah, thank you for the question.
Reading your complaint, the complaint might be caused by several diseases such as:
Inflammation of the throat (pharyngitis) Inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis) ISPA (Acute Respiratory Infections) Viral infections and others To ensure the disease that causes these symptoms, you should see a doctor. You may then be asked to undergo a number of tests such as blood tests, chest x-rays, etc. to determine the disease you are currently suffering from. After your disease is determined, then the doctor will give you the right medicines to eliminate the causes and help reduce the symptoms you feel. But it should also be noted that the disease has its own journey, so that even though medicine has been given, the symptoms that you feel now will not disappear in an instant, but will gradually diminish / improve until finally disappearing.
For the time being, make sure you get enough rest (at least 7-8 hours per day), eat nutritious foods, avoid eating fried foods and drinks that contain ice, drink enough water, exercise regularly and don't get too tired, reduce stress, and avoid also temporary rain because it can also have a detrimental effect on health.
I hope this helps
