Handling If Possible Contracting Corona
Hello doki I had a nasal congestion overnight with sneezing and the day after that my throat was sore. The nose continues to secrete clear, thin liquid like water. This happens gradually. But do not have a fever. This happened after treating my mother who had a fever for 2 days. I am worried that there is a possibility that I will have corona virus. After being checked, it turned out to be asked to return control if within 3 days the fever did not go down because it was feared that a tab event was happening. Is there a possibility that I was infected and what should I do? Thank you.
Hello Nisa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Symptoms of nasal congestion are accompanied by sneezing, sore throat, and runny clear fluid such as water from the nose generally occurs in the respiratory tract due to viral infection. But some other possibilities could be a cause such as allergies or irritation of the nasal mucosa.
Related to your question, you might be infected if your immune system is not optimal at that time. For now, what you can do is increase your endurance by:
A healthy and nutritious diet, vegetables and fruit are reproduced. Drink enough at least 8 glasses / day Get enough rest at least 7-8 hours / day Regular exercise Avoid stress. Take supplements and vitamins if necessary. To avoid transmission, use masks and wash hands regularly. does not improve after doing the above immediately consult a doctor for a complete examination For your mother, if symptoms do not improve within 3 days, immediately return to the doctor who previously handled your mother.
So, hopefully useful.
