Thank you for the question.
Coughs that are often repeated accompanied by a body that often feels cold can occur because of the same trigger, can also be different. If complaints occur together, the most common possible cause is respiratory disorders, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, pulmonary tuberculosis, laryngitis, lung cancer, pharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, and so on. However, it does not rule out your complaints also arise because of disorders in other organ systems, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, weak heart, congestive heart failure, the influence of drugs, immune disorders, stress, and so on.
Your complaints, if it has happened a long time (more than 2 weeks), you should not just leave it alone. Go to your doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be treated properly according to the cause. Most likely, the doctor will also recommend that you undergo an x-ray examination, sputum test, blood test, throat swab, or other supporting tests. With this examination, in addition to the cause of your complaint can be identified, your potential for contracting COVID-19 which is spreading lately can also be evaluated.
In the meantime, the initial handling steps you can take are:
Wear a mask Diligent bathing with warm water, and also wear clothes that warm your body Diligently also wash your hands with soap thoroughly Clean Drink more warm water Eat foods that are easily digested, not cold, and not too oily Excessive shouting Stay away from cigarettes, smoke, pollution, dust, cold, and other things that make you allergic. Use a water humidifier when possible. Hope it helps.
