The Cause Of Cough, Runny Nose, Sneezing And Itchy Throat And Phlegm?
Thank you for the question.
Coughing, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy and phlegm throat can occur due to many factors, for example allergies (such as cold, dust, pollen, food), irritation, foreign body aspiration, viral or bacterial infection, gastric acid reflux, etc. . Refer to your statement, where there is no fever or shortness of breath, and now the complaint has improved after being treated by a doctor, chances are your condition is not dangerous. In order for your complaints to heal more optimally, it is recommended that you:
Increase rest, do not overactivate physical activity, especially in cold, windy and dusty rooms, do not also shout excessively. Drink more warm water. Consume warm food and broth. Don't eat cold or oily drinks. Don't smoke. Use regular masks to exercise. However, if the complaint reappears or worsens after undergoing the above efforts, if you have a history of contact with sufferers of COVID-19 (Corona's disease), a history of traveling to an area that reports local COVID-19 transmission, or a history of in contact with a person from an area who reports a local transmission of COVID-19, you should be more vigilant and have yourself checked by a doctor or internist. Through direct physical examination, or maybe assisted by supporting tests, such as x-rays, sputum tests, blood tests, and so on, surely doctors can already provide you the best treatment according to the cause of the complaint.
Hope this helps ...
