Got cold and felling feverish. Getting headache and mild body pain. Suggest - Online Doctor Chats
How are you?
Hello Dr. XXXXXXX
I am fine
How can I help?
need some advice from you
getting headache and mild body pain
this is since when
last night took a cetrizin
last few days feeling mild cold and getting very little cough
but from yesterday evening onwards, it was bit more
I think we could be looking at simply viral fever
This will take care of the fever and body ache
It will actually become ok on its own within 3-5 days
If the cough or cold is really bad, steam inhalation will also help
remember to take plenty of fluids and eat on time
So shall i take crocin then ?
take it with food
But I dont have much temperature in body
just feeling feverish
yes, that and the body ache that will go away with this. Its only starting out
so how many crocin shall I take and how frequently , pls advice with the timing details
As I said
Take 1 tablet right now
If you feel the need take it again. It can be taken upto 4 times daily
You'll be fine in a few days
after taking 1-2 crocin today, If I feel good, shall I continue or should I stop ?
Its on a need basis
If you have bodyache or feel feverish
otherwise dont take it
what about cetrizine ?
How much shall I take ?
One tablet once a day
shall I continue for 3-4 days ?
No need to take any other medication for cough ?
It'll become ok on its own
Take steam inhalation and tulsi-ginger tea if it doesnt get better
only normal stem inhalation or some medication with the hot water ?
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Just normal steam inhalation is fine
Dont need to add anything
I beleive some medicines are available which can be added to hot water for inhalation
The steam helps remove the secretios
But as I said, its not curing the problem
Its only temporary relief
ok, Thanks doctor XXXXXXX
