Information Regarding COPD (Covid-icles)
The word covid has come up before in medical dictionaries, but is unfamiliar to many people. It refers to inflammation of the tonsils, which is also known as tonsillar inflammation. This condition can also lead to the development of adenoids. Adenoids are swollen glands found at the back of the throat. Because these are inflamed, they can make it difficult to speak, swallow or breathe.
Symptoms of CO VID 19 commonly include fever, sore throat, headache, muscle pain and earache. These symptoms often occur around the first week after onset but recur up to three weeks later. Children sometimes experience lower back pain due to this complication during a cold virus breakout.
A positive history of having cold sores in the past is one way to determine if you have contracted CO VID 19. Other tests include urine and saliva samples as well as culture and viral analysis. Urine and saliva samples can help detect presence of virus in bodily fluids. In order for viral cultures to be properly performed, viral antigens must be mixed with reference antigens from a normal healthy individual. Reference antigens are typically collected from the sputum of an HIV infected individual.
Children who do not have adequate sleep or who stay home alone are at the highest risk for exposure to covid-19. Children of young ages who stay home alone are three times more likely to experience the above mentioned symptoms. If you have a child who experiences a high fever, cough, sore throat and headache, it is best to take him to the doctor immediately. You should also monitor his body temperature daily.
An unusual headache that does not go away is often associated with virus infections. Other common flu symptoms include fatigue, difficulty breathing, dizziness, fever and swollen glands in the neck, face, arms or legs. In some cases, a patient may experience chest discomfort, indigestion or food allergies. In most cases, the above mentioned symptoms will disappear within a week or two. However, in patients who experience prolonged bouts of flu-like symptoms, the virus may continue to circulate and result in serious health problems.
The majority of cases of virus-related respiratory illness are caused by either a strain of influenza or a virus that causes infection in the lungs. Some rare types of virus that cause similar respiratory conditions are cryptosporidiosis, septaviruses and rotaviruses. A case of misdiagnosed pneumonia is another possibility that could be the cause of CO VID. Treatment of CO VID infection includes usage of peginterferon or ribavirin, an anti-inflammatory drug. Medications that have been proven to improve the condition of the liver, including cimetidine, ranitidine, oxcarbazepine, fluridil and some anti-fungal medications also have been used in cases of mild to moderate CO VID. However, if the illness is severe, doctors always advise the patient to abstain from physical contact with others until the symptoms disappear.
