I have a cold and cough, plus my mouth is bitter and has too much water. to reduce my mouth which is bitter and sticky, what should I do, doc?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your complaint is not specific, and can be found in various diseases such as tonsillitis, laryngitis, typhoid fever, inflammation of the esophagus and salivary gland infections. To ensure this, you must do a direct check on yourself.
But given that the corona virus is endemic in Indonesia, an ideal examination does not appear to be necessary. So our advice is try to keep your oral cavity clean by regularly brushing your teeth and gargling using mouthwash, avoid smoking, avoid consuming sweet and sour foods and drinks, and if you really feel unwell, get plenty of rest. In addition, avoid going outdoors unless there are important matters, maintain endurance by exercising regularly, taking a multivitamin, and getting enough rest.
If indeed the condition does not improve or even worsen, then it means you do have to see yourself to a doctor, especially a general practitioner first. Your general practitioner will perform an initial examination and later you can be treated directly or referred to a dentist or ENT doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
