Throat Feels Lumpy When Experiencing Cough With Phlegm
In the afternoon, the doctor has been coughing for 10 days, at first I only sneezed and had a cold 2 weeks ago because it was cold. If I cold water in the morning, I would have sneezed so I had a cold, my cold subsided, my throat was like a lump. no but not fever not sore throat just itchy, then when my throat feels itchy I deliberately cough it hurts in my chest feels a sound, I’m parno afraid of being exposed to COVID-19 but thank God in my area it’s still a safe zone of COVID-19, sometimes I panic because I’m also breastfeeding, guess I’m sick or not, thanks

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I understand the concern that you are experiencing, covid 19 complaints are similar to flu, symptoms are almost similar to difficult to distinguish, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor and additional examinations such as rapid tests and swabs of the throat or nose to make sure the cause is covid 19 or not, but more symptoms specific namely high fever, coughing and shortness of breath. complaints that you experience can be caused by allergies as you say appear when cold, it is one of the causes of allergies, but can also be caused by viruses and bacteria that cause respiratory infections. You should postpone to the doctor first if the symptoms do not worsen, but if the symptoms do not improve as well and accompanied by complaints of high fever and shortness of breath you can immediately see a doctor to do the examination and treatment correctly. a strong cough will indeed cause a chest pain because pressure is a normal thing, but if the chest pain occurs without coughing and shortness of breath you can also immediately check with the nearest doctor.
There are a number of things you can do to deal with complaints that you experience:
avoid triggers such as cold, dust, smoke, animal dander and pollen
multiply at least 2 liters of warm water a day
You can suck on lozenges containing mint
You can also apply balm on your neck, chest and back
You can prepare warm water vapors that you can breathe with drops of eucalyptus oil
use a mask wherever and whenever, try to sleep separately
bask in the morning in the sun
You can also consume warm honey and lemon squeeze
if you are very disturbed you can consume obtough cough colds which are sold diapotik free for a while.
If you have done the above thing but there is no improvement for more than 2 weeks and accompanied by symptoms of aggravating, immediately ask the doctor, stay at home and do social and physical distancing, yes. with this state of yourself you can do independent isolation by doing what is recommended by the government do not forget to take vitamin c if necessary and consume nutritious foods multiply vegetables and fruit.
