Hello Dimas, thank you for asking.
Complaints that you feel can be caused by several possibilities including viral infections, bacterial infections, allergies, or irritation of the respiratory tract due to cigarette smoke, vehicle smoke, or air pollution. The medicine that the doctor gives seems appropriate but keep in mind, the medicine alone is not enough to improve the state of your body. Consumption of healthy and nutritious food, lots of drinking water, enough rest also needs to be done to support the drugs given. If it has been done and the complaint also does not improve, we recommend that you control again to your doctor.
Related to your previous question, of course you cannot uphold someone affected by corona infection only from the symptoms that are experienced, because there are no symptoms that are typical for the infection. A complete physical examination and other relevant investigations are of course important to do. For the time being increase endurance with a healthy lifestyle, avoid crowds, minimize traveling, and use a mask if you have complaints, as well as routine hand washing especially before and after touching the face you can do to minimize prevention.
