I was hot, had a sore throat, shivered, but I didn’t have a cold and had a bad breath. I took paracetamol, the heat went down but it went up again, last time I drank it last night and this morning the heat went down but the throat was still inflamed and the dizziness was still there. What medicine is suitable?
Hello Rudi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever, sore throat, and chills are a collection of symptoms that can be caused by various things, including:
Viral infections such as ARI, influenza, common cold
Bacterial infections such as tuberculosis, pneumonia
Malignancy, and other causes
To find out the right treatment, certainly the exact cause must be known. The cause can be determined by conducting a physical examination and other necessary checks such as blood tests. That way the handling will be directed and appropriate.
Your actions by taking Paracetamol are correct, but you need to pay attention to the accuracy of the dosage and the rules of use, then look at the packaging of the drug you are taking. Besides treatment with drugs alone is certainly not effective, some things that must be done besides consuming drugs are:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Expand vegetables and fruit
Get enough rest
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Manage stress well
Wash your hands regularly with soap and running water
If your complaint continues for more than three days or is considered burdensome immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. In the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic when you go outside using a mask, keep your distance from the people around you, and avoid using public transportation as much as possible.
That's all, hope it helps.
