Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sneezing as you experience it may be caused by an infection with a normal virus (rhinovirus) or commonly referred to as a cold or common cold. Viral infections like this do not require specific therapy because they will usually heal themselves within 7-10 days. You may take a cold cough reliever that you can buy freely at the pharmacy, but make sure you always read the instructions for drug use, contraindications, and warnings and possible side effects of the drug before you consume it. Because you most likely have a normal viral infection, antibiotics do not need to be given because it will not be effective also to overcome this virus infection.
To help reduce symptoms, here are some things you can do:
Try to sleep and rest more
Try to drink more liquid, at least 2-3 liters a day
Eat nutritious food to taste
Rinse the nose with saline
Use a humidifier or air humidifier in your bedroom
Take a shower with warm water and breathe water vapor from your bath water
Drink honey or warm ginger to help reduce your cough
Given the corona virus pandemic at this time, you should also isolate yourself at home to avoid the possibility of you transmitting your disease to others and also reduce your chances of contracting the corona virus from other people. If you experience a cough accompanied by fever and shortness of breath, call 119 ext 9 immediately to find out further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
