Flu And Throat Itching
Hello Bagaz, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
COVID-19 is a respiratory infection caused by the Corona virus. The main symptoms can include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms can also occur such as colds, sore throat, itchy throat, dizziness, headaches, and so on. However, these symptoms are not typical of COVID-19, because other respiratory infections caused by viruses such as influenza or common cold have similar symptoms. A state of immunity / a weak immune system can increase the risk of becoming infected with a virus.
So to find out the cause it is necessary to do a series of examinations starting from medical interviews to determine the course of the disease and a certain history, such as COVID-19 namely the history of traveling to an infected area / country, a history of contact with a confirmed patient, or living and settling in a local transmission area . Furthermore, physical examination and additional examinations such as blood tests, chest x-rays, throat swabs and so on are needed.
With this examination can be known the exact cause of your complaint whether it leads to a viral infection or even other causes such as bacterial infections, allergies, or irritation. If the cause is a viral infection, treatment in the form of treatment of symptoms and increase endurance, but if due to a bacterial infection, antibiotics are certainly needed, if allergies will be given hypo-allergies, and so on.
