Possible Infection With Corona Virus When Shortness Of Breath, Cough, And Runny Nose
Good night, I have complaints of shortness of breath accompanied by coughing for three days now. And it often happens at night. Before this I caught a cold and a cold for about 10 days at the beginning of the month. Are these symptoms of Covid19? But I do not have a history of traveling or dealing directly with sufferers of Covid19. Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath, coughing, and colds can indeed be caused one of them by COVID-19 (a disease caused by Corona virus infection). But in addition, various viral or other bacterial infections, allergies, foreign body aspirations, seasonal changes, nasal polyps, gastric acid reflux, immune disorders, drug side effects, asthma, bronchitis, etc. can also trigger these complaints.
If indeed you do not have a history of contact with COVID-19 sufferers, do not have a history of traveling to areas with local transmission of COVID-19, and also do not have a history of contact with people from regions with local transmission of COVID-19, then your real risk for contracting COVID-19 is quite small. It's just that, as a form of vigilance, it never hurts you to go directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine. With a direct physical examination, or accompanied by X-ray examinations, blood tests, sputum tests, and other supporting examinations, often doctors are able to distinguish exactly what conditions trigger your complaints at this time.
In the meantime, you can handle your complaint first by:
Use a mask Stay away from substances that make your airway inflamed, such as cold, dust mites, pollen, animal dander, smoke, pollution More rest Diligent bathing and washing hands with antiseptic soap Eat a variety of healthy and nutritious foods When still crowded and coughing, don't I used to eat cold food, gas, oily, and artificial sweetness. Don't smoke. Hope it helps.
