The Difference Between The Common Cold Cough And The Flu Because Of The Corona Virus
I have an itchy throat because I want to cough, usually after drinking water it doesn’t cough. the intensity of the cough is slight, usually morning or evening. There has been no fever to above 38, fever above 38 degrees certainly feels the difference. so far there has been no shortness of breath. Previously had a headache in the back of the head, and even then I think it used to also often and heal itself. Besides when I was dizzy, I slept late until night. How?
Thank you for the question.
An itchy throat with a slight cough and dizziness can indeed be part of the symptoms of a disease caused by a Corona virus infection (COVID-19). However, if you do not have the risk of contracting COVID-19, such as if you have never traveled to an area with a local transmission of COVID-19, if you have never been in contact with a person from an area with a local transmission of COVID-19, and if you have never also come into contact with sufferers of COVID-19 itself, so it is likely that your complaint arises due to other triggers, for example pharyngitis, allergies, gastric acid reflux, irritation, dry throat, foreign body aspiration, drug influence, excessive vocal cord strain, and so on.
Our advice, you do not panic. If it's true that you don't have a fever and don't have the risk factors for COVID-19 as mentioned above, then you can handle your complaint first by:
Don't talk too much, let alone scream
Use a mask
Drink plenty of warm water
Don't eat and drink oily, artificial sweet and cold
Stay away from substances that often make you allergic
Get more rest
Do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice
However, if within 3 days the complaint has not improved, if you have a risk of contracting COVID-19, or if you have a more severe complaint, such as tightness, vomiting, wheezing, fever, etc., do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor so that given the right handling. If necessary, the doctor can refer you to the ENT doctor or internal medicine later.
Hope this helps ...
