Fever With Nasal Congestion, Corona Right?
Recently, I felt a little fever and now it’s gone. but now change my nose like it’s blocked … is it corona?
Thank you for the question.
Fever with nasal congestion may be part of the symptoms of COVID-19 (a disease due to Corona virus infection), or it may not. Various other conditions that can also cause fever and nasal congestion are viral or other bacterial infections (such as Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Adenovirus, Influenza), allergies, nasal polyps, irritation or entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity, nasopharyngeal cancer, and so on. Sometimes, disorders of the immunity to an excessive sensitivity to certain drugs can also cause fever and nasal congestion.
Your condition, if it only lasts a few days, without any other more severe complaints such as shortness of breath, repeated nosebleeds, wheezing, coughing, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, etc., may not be dangerous. If you have not traveled to an area with a COVID-19 outbreak, if you have not been in contact with people from an area with a COVID-19 outbreak, and if you have not contacted the COVID-19 sufferer yourself, it is very unlikely that you will can experience COVID-19.
Our advice, try to relieve your fever first by taking paracetamol, drink lots of water, and limit the exhausting physical activity first, especially in the hot sun. Not only that, you also need to avoid contact with allergens, such as cold, dust mites, animal hair, pollen, and so on. Be diligent in exercising, get enough sleep, don't smoke, and eat lots of fruits rich in vitamin C so that your immune system is maintained.
If in 1-3 days your fever does not also subside, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor to be given the best management huh ..
I hope this helps.
