Fever is a symptom that can arise due to many possible causes, the most common of which is due to infection, whether caused by viruses, bacteria or other causes. Fever can be accompanied by other symptoms according to the cause, such as coughing, headache, muscle pain, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat and other complaints.
Sore throat itself can arise not only because of strep throat but also triggered by inflammation of the tonsils, respiratory infections, acid reflux disease, allergies and other causes. To reduce it, several efforts can be made such as drinking more water, getting enough rest, taking pain relievers such as paracetamol, consuming warm drinks such as tea and lemon or honey, consuming lozenges, avoiding exposure to allergens such as cigarette smoke, gargling with salt water and other attempts.
If the fever continues for 3 days, there is greater pain in swallowing, difficulty in moving the mouth or jaw, shortness of breath, wheezing, skin rash, ear pain or worsening complaints, immediately consult a doctor for an examination and be given appropriate treatment .
