hello my doc farid is 20 years old I want to ask if the throat for swallowing feels annoying .. that’s covid 19 symptoms?, thanks doc
Hello Farid, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaint, the complaint could indeed be one of the symptoms of COVID-19 although it is less typical, and the complaint can also be caused by several other possible conditions such as:
Since there is still a possibility that you might be infected with COVID-19 even though it is not unique, it is recommended that you now:
Remain silent at home for at least 14 days since the first complaint was felt, try to keep you in a different room with your other family members
Use a surgical mask even if you're indoors
Maintaining adequate and balanced nutritious food intake every day
Increase vegetable and fruit intake
Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake a day
Get adequate rest every day at least 6-8 hours a day
Exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes every day
Maintain hand hygiene routinely by washing hands using soap and running water or 70% or more alcohol based alcohol
Avoid sharing your personal food / drinks / equipment with others
You are allowed to take medicine / throat lozenges according to the dosage on the package, if within 3 days the complaint does not improve, immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation
You are also allowed to take vitamin supplements or boost your immune system if you feel it helps
If your complaint is accompanied by a high fever (temperature reaches 38 degrees or more) and shortness of breath, immediately go to the hospital to get further help.
I hope this helps.
