My 13-year-old son’s doc has shortness of breath, fever, diarrhea but not coughing and flu, at least a few coughs and not often. Does this include the covid-19 virus?

1 Answer:

Hello Hesti,


Thank you for the question.

Shortness of breath, fever, diarrhea, and sometimes coughing can be symptoms of COVID-19. As is known, COVID-19 can show different clinical symptoms in each person, some are mild, some are severe, some are even asymptomatic. So, if you live / have traveled to COVID-19 or if you have been in contact with sufferers / suspects of COVID-19, even if you don't experience any typical symptoms, you still need to be aware of your risk of contracting COVID-19.


In addition to COVID-19, other viral or bacterial infections, as well as other health problems besides infection, for example asthma, intestinal obstruction, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, excessive anxiety disorders, inflammatory disorders, etc. can also cause complaints such as what you are experiencing right now. .


If the tightness feels heavy enough, if the fever has lasted more than 3 days, or if you are at risk of contracting COVID-19 (due to the above factors), then it is better for you to go directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine for further treatment according to the cause, right? ... On the other hand, if your complaint is mild, it is safer for you to stay at home first, then return to natural treatment such as:

Compress warm chest tightness
Take paracetamol if you still have a fever
Eat first food that is easily digested, don't be too spicy, fatty, and gassy
During coughing, don't eat cold, oily, artificial sweet foods
Don't be accustomed to eating food that is not cooked or doubt its cleanliness
Drink more, especially water
Don't think too much
Avoid things that often make you allergic

Hope this helps ...
