Thank you for the question.
Sore throat and sneezing can not only occur due to COVID-19 (a disease caused by a new Corona virus infection). It could also, this complaint arises purely due to irritation of the throat and airways, such as when exposed to dry air, the entry of foreign objects, or consuming certain foods and drinks. Other factors, such as allergies, excessive vocal cord stretching, sinusitis, nasal polyps, to viral and other bacterial infections (besides the new Corona virus) can also trigger complaints like this.
If your complaint is mild, and you can also have a risk factor for contracting COVID-19 (such as having been in contact with sufferers of COVID-19, having traveled or been in contact with people from the COVID-19 outbreak area), then you should not be afraid to overdo it. Resolve your complaint first by:
Plenty of rest
Use a mask while still sneezing
Drink plenty of warm water, honey, lemon or ginger can also be added
Stay away from cigarettes and smoke, dust, pollution, spicy foods, oily foods, cold foods and drinks
Wash and wash your hands thoroughly
Do not carelessly hold your face, unless you wash your hands
Regularly exercise to increase endurance
Take paracetamol if the pain in your throat is very annoying
Within 1-3 days, mild conditions can often improve with the above efforts. However, if the complaint worsens, if there are shortness, vomiting and fever for more than 3 days, or if you feel you have a risk factor for contracting COVID-19, you should go to your doctor or ENT doctor for proper treatment to be given the appropriate treatment the cause of the disease ...
I hope this helps.
