Doc, why do I feel my throat itch lately? Are these any signs that I am infected with the corona virus

1 Answer:

Hello Princess Gita,

Thank you for the question.

The emergence of the covid-19 outbreak caused by the corona virus does make us worry, but you don't need to panic. Symptoms that appear in covid-19 are characterized by fever (body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius), coughing colds, sore throat, and there can also be shortness of breath. However, there are many other conditions that are more likely to cause itchy symptoms in the throat, such as:

 Sore throat. Tonsillitis. Inflammation of the vocal cords. Common cold. The above condition is basically caused by a virus that can heal by itself within 1 week without the need for special treatment. However, if symptoms last more than 1 week, accompanied by fever, and also shortness of breath, you should immediately contact the nearest doctor. Meanwhile, you can take advice to reduce itchy throat:

 Take pain relievers such as paracetamol. Drink warm water to relieve throat. Avoid sugary and greasy foods / drinks such as fried foods and soft drinks, as they can irritate the throat. Adequate nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2 liters per day. Then, to reduce the risk of covid-19 transmission, here's what you can do:

 Wash your hands regularly and correctly with water and soap or sanitizer. Avoid touching the face with your hands. Doing a good and right coughing and sneezing ethic. Clean the furniture that is often used and the environment. Avoid going out and going to crowded places. Avoid direct contact with others or social distancing. Maintaining immunity, can by taking immune supplements. Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.

Regards.
