Itching Of The Throat Accompanied By Itching, Pain And Shortness Of Breath What Are The Characteristics Of The Corona Virus?
Is breathing difficult due to itching in the throat causing coughing and when coughing the throat hurts … could it be a symptom of the corona virus ??? Please give instructions how to treat or anticipate it?
Thank you for the question.
A throat that feels itchy, aches, coughs, and has difficulty breathing can indeed be part of the symptoms of COVID-19, which is a respiratory infection caused by the Corona virus (SARS-CoV 2). However, not only that, respiratory infections by a variety of other microorganisms can also cause complaints like this. In addition to infection, your complaints can also arise due to allergies, irritation, aspiration of foreign bodies, reflux of stomach acid, to benign or malignant tumors around the throat and respiratory tract.
Typically, complaints that arise due to COVID-19 will also make you experience fever and shortness of breath in more severe cases. Not only that, to be suspected of having COVID-19, you also need to have a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area, contacting people from the COVID-19 outbreak area, or also contacting people who are positive for COVID-19. Do you have these risks?
If not, you really don't need to worry. As long as complaints continue between 1-3 days, you can overcome them first with plenty of rest, routinely drink warm water, be diligent in eating fruits rich in vitamin C, don't consume cold and oily foods, limit screaming and excessive talking, wear masks , and consumption of supplements and regular exercise so that endurance remains excellent. However, if the complaint continues for more than 3 days, if there are more severe symptoms, or if you have a risk of COVID-19 as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor, ENT doctor, or internist in order to further treatment is given ..
I hope this helps.
