The Cause Of Discomfort In The Throat And Phlegm Feels Prop
Doctor, so it’s been a few days that I feel bad in my throat. Though I often drink water and also anget tea. Then it turned out I felt phlegm, and for swallowing it could but hurt. I have tried to expel phlegm but the results are never exhausted. Note: I do not cough, runny nose or fever. But just after waking up in the morning I felt dizzy, after taking antalgin so I was not dizzy anymore. My mother also gave amoxcilin for my throat problem, so what should I do next?
Hello Bram, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
From the story that you tell, complaints that can be taken are discomfort in the throat, and feels phlegm. Of the complaints are not so specific, and other data are still needed to establish a definitive diagnosis. However, there are several suspected diseases that you may experience are as follows:
Some of the diseases above have similar signs and symptoms. So as to distinguish it still needs a direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will ask some questions that may be related to your complaint. Physical examination is very important in establishing the diagnosis. For this reason, you should consult directly to a general practitioner.
Respond to your questions regarding the symptoms of Covid-19, and the medications you have been taking. Covid-19 has symptoms of fever> 38'C, cough, and tightness, but these symptoms can occur 2 - 14 days after being infected with the virus, so for you it is better to do "self isolating" to monitor complaints that occur in you, if improved either after taking the drug or not taking the drug can be ascertained it is not covid-19, but if the complaint worsens, and symptoms of high fever, shortness, coughing then immediately contact the nearest health center or hospital. For amoxicillin that you consume, it is one antibiotic that is very much a mistake in its use carelessly, the effect can cause germs resistant to these antibiotics. Your disease is not necessarily caused by bacteria. For that, consult a doctor directly in advance to find out for sure your disease.
You can also check the risk of contracting the corona virus here.
Right now what you can do is:
Stay alert and don't panic
Avoid going out of the house / traveling to a crowded place if it is not an emergency.
Perform physical distancing / self quarantine for at least 14 days. This is aimed if you are positive the corona is not contagious, and if you are negative but your immunity is currently down you will be easily infected.
Consumption of fruits and vegetables.
You can take a multivitamin.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Use a mask / apply ethics cough properly when coughing / runny nose.
Wash your hands often with soap, especially after / before touching something / doing activities.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
