The Throat Is Uncomfortable And The Voice Changes What Are The Symptoms Of Covid-19?
Hello doc, why did my throat suddenly become uncomfortable as usual, my voice also changed and disappeared a bit, whether this is a symptom of the covid-19 virus
Thank you for the question.
Throat that feels uncomfortable accompanied by changes in voice can indeed be part of the symptoms of COVID-19 (new Corona virus infection). But in addition, your complaints can also arise due to other triggers, such as dry throat, excessive stretching of the vocal cords, allergies or irritation, viral or other bacterial infections, gastric acid reflux, benign or malignant tumors around the throat, the influence of drugs, disorders immunity, and so on.
If this is your only complaint, and if you do not have COVID-19 risk factors (such as having been in contact with a COVID-19 sufferer, have traveled or have contacted people who have traveled to an area with a COVID-19 outbreak), then your concern can actually be minimized. Try to overcome your complaint first by:
Don't talk loud or blow too much
Drink warm water, you can also add honey or ginger, more
Avoid consuming meanings and cold drinks, oily, artificial sweets, and spicy
Stay away from cigarettes and smoke, dust, wind, cold, pollution, and other things that are prone to trigger strep throat
Limit activities outside the home, except when urgent
If with the steps above the complaint has not improved, or if you feel you have a risk factor for COVID-19, do not hesitate to consult a doctor directly. If necessary, the doctor will direct you to see an ENT doctor or internist for further evaluation and treatment.
Hope this helps ...
