Headache And Throats
Tonight, sorry, I want to ask you from yesterday night, I have a cold, but I have no runny nose, my throat hurts a lot when I swallow, and my head hurts and feels shivering. Should I take medicine?
Hello Fahtima, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help answer.
Complaints of sore throat, headache, body feels chills, body weakness can be caused by:
Pharyngitis: an inflammation that occurs in the pharynx, can be caused by viruses or bacteria. The symptoms caused by sore throat, painful swallowing, fever.
Laryngitis: an inflammation that occurs in the larynx, can be caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms include sore throat, painful swallowing, fever and hoarseness.
Tonsillitis: an inflammation that occurs in the tonsils, can be caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms include sore throat, painful swallowing, fever, coughing.
To further ensure that complaints are felt to lead to what disease, a physical examination and additional investigations are needed by the doctor. However, because now the corona outbreak is happening, then postponed first to see a doctor. You need to know, if before a complaint arises you have traveled to an area affected by a corona outbreak or made contact with corona sufferers, you can isolate or stay at home for a period of 14 days in the future. And if there are complaints such as high fever, severe cough, sore throat, shortness of breath then immediately take it to the hospital to get further treatment.
For now you don't need to worry and don't worry, there are several actions you can take at home such as:
Increase the consumption of water
Wash your hands before eating, and after handling something
Use a mask or mouth cover if you sneeze or cough
Remain silent at home, if forced to leave the house then must use a mask, avoid shaking hands, avoid contact and keep a distance
Thus a brief explanation from me, hopefully can help. thanks.
