Fevers Fluctuate For 3 Days What Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. It’s been 3 days I have a fever. But the fever is not high, and sometimes. Like yesterday my temperature was normal all day but today it is rather hot again. That’s why, doc? But I am not coughing, not having a cold, not short of breath either, I’m also not weak, just my body temperature goes up and down. Tonight, reading my regional news, there has been a positive corona, so I am afraid of the dock. Please enlighten me. Thank you ☺
Hello Wanda, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Covid-19 infections have been categorized into a pandemic by WHO. Indonesia is one of many countries attacked by the disease. The disease was first discovered in Wuhan, China and spread almost all over the world so quickly. The spread of this disease through droplet / sprinkling of someone's saliva.
The signs and symptoms of the disease itself are nonspecific, and can vary but there are 3 main signs a person is infected with Covid-19, namely Fever> 38'C, shortness of breath, and cough. This virus has an incubation period of 2 - 14 days, so a person infected with this virus may not necessarily experience symptoms immediately.
Responding to what you are asking about the fever you are experiencing, currently covid-19 infection cannot be directly enforced based solely on the patient's symptoms, therefore the appeal from the current government is to remain silent at home, reduce out-of-home activities for Covid transmission chain mutations -19 itself. So I advise you to remain silent at home while evaluating the complaints you feel, if the complaints improve or disappear within the next few days you can be sure you are not infected with coviid-19, but if complaints worsen such as high fever> 38'C, coughing and shortness arise you can contact the health center, or the nearest hospital. You can check the risk of covid-19 infection here.
My guess is that some of the diseases you might be experiencing right now are:
Common cold. Flu. Pharyngitis. Thyfoid fever. Dengue hemorrhagic fever, etc. All of the above illnesses may have a fever complaint, for more details you can consult directly to the doctor, to ensure this while continuing to be vigilant, and limit outside activities if not so important.
Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase immunity. Enough of your daily fluid needs. Consumption of fruits, vegetables, and multivitamins to enhance immunity. Do self-isolating, and social distancing Avoid excessive panic because it can cause complaints (automation). That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
