First of all: the time of main medication. If Chinese medicine can be used for the first time, that is to say, starting to use medicine when symptoms appear, it can effectively improve symptoms such as fever, sore throat, soreness of the whole body’s joints and muscles, and fatigue. How to choose Chinese patent medicine? On the whole, the drugs used to treat colds with the effects of expelling wind and clearing heat, removing dampness and detoxification, clearing away pestilence, and dispersing lungs have good effects on the current infection of Omicron. Here, we should pay attention not to repeat the medication, just take the measurement every time, and not take more measurements. In addition, patients with chronic diseases should take the daily treatment drugs on time, and not delay the treatment of chronic diseases. For example, patients with hypertension, after having COVID-19, should not ignore the treatment of hypertension just to treat COVID-19, which will aggravate the condition of basic diseases and delay the treatment of COVID-19.
Is there any other way to relieve symptoms besides taking medicine? We can also choose some methods or means of traditional Chinese medicine, such as acupoint massage, for sore throat, fever, or cough, and for patients with fever and high temperature, We can massage Hegu point, Dazhui point, Quchi point, etc. to relieve the patient’s pain symptoms, which can have a good auxiliary treatment effect.
