What Are The First Signs Of Corona?
Hello, doc. I am 21 years old, I have a history of asthma, and I still use Symbicort routinely on the advice of a doctor who treats me in a private hospital in Jakarta. I will feel short of breath when I am late taking the drug, but when I regularly use the drug I feel fine.
Hello Okta Piani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading the complaints that you are feeling right now, complaints of cough and colds can indeed be a symptom of COVID-19 even though there is no fever found because your body temperature that you wrote the highest still falls into the category of normal body temperature (36.3-37.4) , because a new fever is declared when it is proven that body temperature reaches 38 degrees or more. However, these complaints can also be caused by other conditions such as:
ARI Common Cold Influenza Rhinitis Even if you do not have a history of traveling abroad / other areas that have a high COVID-19 case in Indonesia and a clear history of contact with patients with COVID-19, it is highly recommended to check your complaints more go to the doctor for further evaluation and risk determination for your corona infection.
Regarding what the patient feels when the fever is high, generally what is felt is the body becomes cold (can also be accompanied by chills) because the threshold value of the body temperature at the central temperature regulator in the brain has increased, so that even when body temperature is measured to be at a high temperature above the value normal patients will still feel cold because the body itself considers that body temperature is still low.
In the meantime, in addition to going to the doctor, you are also advised to:
Stay indoors for at least 14 days since the first complaint is felt. Use a mask while at home. Conduct a good and proper cough ethic. Wash hands using soap and water or 60-70% alcohol-based sanitizers routinely. fruit Ensure you consume perfectly cooked food. Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake a day. Avoid sharing food / drinks and your personal equipment with others. You are allowed to consume cold medicines that are sold freely in accordance with the dosage package until there is further advice from your doctor. Keep using your asthma medication routinely according to the rules to prevent recurrence Perform regular and regular exercise at least 30 minutes a day Get adequate rest at least 6-8 hours a day Avoiding stress Avoid smoking and the originators of your asthma recurrence Hope it helps.
