Fever, Flu And Cough Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Tonight, from 1 day I felt a feverish body but not too much and I also had a cold and a cough. I wanted to ask if it was a symptom of the corona virus?
Thank you for the question.
Fever, accompanied by coughs and colds, is generally caused by infections in the respiratory tract, for example due to viruses (including Corona viruses or other viruses) or bacteria. At first glance, the symptoms of these various infections can be the same. Not only that, various other conditions besides infection, such as allergies, irritation, foreign body aspiration, gastric acid reflux, benign or malignant tumors, and side effects of some types of drugs can also cause clinical symptoms like this.
Simply put, you can distinguish between the various conditions above and COVID-19 (a disease due to Corona virus infection) by tracking possible risk factors, namely close contact with COVID-19 sufferers, close contact with people who have gone to the area with local transmission of COVID- 19, or have traveled to the area with local transmission COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks.
If you do not have the above risk factors, you should not panic. Overcome your fever, cough and runny nose with the following steps:
Take paracetamol if you still have a fever. Don't consume cold foods and drinks, artificial sweets and oil. Get plenty of rest, only go outdoors if urgent. Use masks while still coughing and runny nose. Don't carelessly exchange personal belongings with others. Take a shower and wash your hands with water. flow and soap Do not hold your face, except with clean and washed hands Do not smoke Stay away from cold, dust, smoke, pollution, and other substances that make you allergic Wear clothes that warm you If in 3 days the fever does not improve, if it appears crowded, vomiting, chest pain, high fever, or if you have one or more of the COVID-19 risk factors above, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor. If necessary, the doctor will direct you to see a specialist Appropriate (such as ENT or internal medicine) or undergo a supporting examination (such as blood tests, x-rays, or sputum test).
Hope this helps ...
