Hello Alvi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Fever is a condition where the body temperature is above 38 degrees Celsius. Of course the cause of this fever is very diverse. Fever is a symptom, sometimes in a fever the disease is often accompanied by complaints or other symptoms. Fever can be caused by:
Viral infections, fungal bacteria and parasites
Some types of drugs can also cause fever symptoms.
To determine whether you are just a normal fever or have other illnesses, you should consult a doctor to conduct interviews about your complaints in more detail, and do a physical examination of your body directly. Because so many diseases that cause symptoms of fever.
Currently covid 19 infection is indeed very panic for everyone. Covid 19 infection has symptoms such as coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius, and shortness of breath. If you do not have a history of contact with positive people, no history of traveling to the affected area, no comorbidities, and young age, you should just rest at home and apply social distancing / self quarantine. Because we never know whether in our body there is a virus or not. Although already infected, some cause symptoms and some do not.
Right now what you should do is:
Avoid traveling to crowded places if it is not an emergency.
Stay at home for at least 14 days.
Use a mask when coughing / runny nose or if not present, apply the correct ethics of cough.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Maintain a nutritious diet, multiply to eat fruits and vegetables.
Consumption of enough water.
Consumption of fever drugs that are sold freely in pharmacies such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, etc.
Consult a doctor if complaints become more severe.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
