There Is A Lump Of Mucus In The Throat But Not Coughing?
Hello, I want almost a week in my throat like a lump of mucus and I think this is a sign that I want to cough but I don’t cough at all. Yeah, there’s phlegm. And the last two days I felt that the lump in my throat was getting down to my chest and it made it hard to breathe. In the afternoon to the afternoon I often have a fever. What do you think this is, I’m afraid that it’s hit by a corona virus because I am temporarily domiciled in a solo city that has a corona outbreak. Please explain and what should I make.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The existence of a sense like a lump of mucus in the throat can be caused by several possibilities, including:
there is an infection of the bronchitis or inflammation of the bronchi allergic reactions or irritation of the airways (eg due to exposure to cigarette smoke, excessive air pollution, etc.) post nasal drip (usually due to sinusitis) GERD or gastric acid disease history of choking most often corona virus infection give symptoms such as fever and dry cough. If you have a clear history of exposure to the corona virus, for example you have a history of traveling to an infected country, you have contact with someone who has recently traveled to an infected country, or you have contact with someone who has already been diagnosed with a corona virus infection, then you should immediately conduct self-isolation at home and call 119 ext 9 to find out further examination flow.
If you don't have a clear history of exposure, you can try to do the following:
Drink more fluids (at least 2-3 liters a day) Avoid smoking and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke Avoid exposure to excessive air pollution Sleep and adequate rest (at least 7-9 hours a day) Take a bath with warm water and breathe warm water vapor from your bath water Install an air humidifier in your bedroom or your workspace if your room is air-conditioned. Do not leave the house unless absolutely forced (do social and physical distancing). Don't go to crowded or crowded places or use public transportation. Wash your hands with soap as often as possible, or use a hand sanitizer if there is no washing place. Do not touch your face often, especially if you have not washed your hands. If you have a fever, dry cough, until experiencing shortness of breath, immediately isolate yourself at home and call 119 ext 9 for Advanced inspection flow.
