Fever And Cough That Never Heal?
Hello, 2 days ago I caught a cold until I experienced vomiting all day, then after treatment, the situation gradually recovered but left a cough (itchy in the throat), because I recovered and didn’t take medicine anymore because it was feared that there would be drowsiness when I was sleeping, the next day I had a fever again. again accompanied by coughing. Please advise, how to overcome this? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Fever, accompanied by coughing and itching in the throat, is usually caused by infections of the respiratory tract, for example due to viruses or bacteria. This infection most often affects the upper respiratory tract, such as the nasal cavity, sinus, or throat. Although it can also, this infection occurs in the lower respiratory tract, for example the bronchi, bronchioles, and even the lungs, and causes almost the same clinical symptoms. Apart from respiratory infections, your complaints may also be caused by infections in other organ systems, tonsillitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic ulcers, allergies, and so on. In the medical realm, the term cold is unknown. Therefore, since we did not check your condition beforehand, it is not our authority to determine whether your current condition has anything to do with your previous illness.
The good, if your fever still lasts 1-3 days, don't panic first. Resolve your complaint by:
Take paracetamol medicine Drink more warm water, can also be added honey or ginger Eat soft, warm, and berkuah foods Do not consume cold, hard, oily, and artificial sweet foods and drinks Don't smoke Stay away from smoke, dust, pollution, dry air, and other substances that might irritate your respiratory tract More rest Don't talk too much or shout too much However, if within 3 days your complaint doesn't improve, don't hesitate to consult a doctor, ENT doctor, or doctor of disease in order to be given the best treatment
I hope this helps.
