Pain When Swallowing Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Hello my doctor for 3 days if I swallow, saliva often discharges, and for example if I don’t get corona, can I get it?
Thank you for the question.
Pain when swallowing is most often caused by strep throat and / or tonsils (tonsillopharyngitis). The trigger for this condition can range from a dry throat, allergies, irritation, consumption of certain foods or drinks, infections, even benign or malignant tumors in the vicinity. Not infrequently, pain when swallowing can also occur related to gastroesophageal reflux disease, disorders of the jaw joints, impaction or abscess of wisdom teeth, Crohn's disease, psychological disorders, and various other diseases.
There are many microorganisms that cause infections that can lead to tonsillopharyngitis. Not only Corona virus (SARS-CoV 2), this infection can also be caused by a variety of viruses or other bacteria. If you do not have a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area (a disease caused by the Corona virus), do not have a history of contact with people from the COVID-19 outbreak area, and have never contacted a COVID-19 sufferer, then your potential for contracting this disease is very small.
It's best if you don't panic. Relieve the pain in your throat first by taking the drug paracetamol. Not only that, drink plenty of warm water, limit your consumption of spicy and oily foods, eat a little but often, don't shout too much, don't smoke, and also reduce tiring physical activity.
If within 1-3 days your pain has not improved, try to check it directly to the doctor or the nearest ENT doctor to be treated properly.
I hope this helps.
