AIKEN - @Oliiva, I see. All symptoms have appeared on last Saturday? Did they happen at the same time, did you have a cough then nausea or you had both at the same time. What did you vomit? Is it liquid or solid? Also, how bad is your cough? Do you have a sore throat? What country/city do you live? Have you been travelling lately? If so, where? PS. 35 is lower than average temperature; I suggest you measure your temperature again to be more accurate.

AIKEN - @Oliiva, I see. First of all, it's likely to be a viral infection. Honey is natural cough medicine, which helps to relieve your sore throat and reduces coughing, but if it is not getting better within a week, you should see your GP or family doctor in case it is something else. I would recommend you to drink plenty of fluid, including hot soup, tea and water. Make sure you are hydrated. It can take approximately one to two weeks to recover. If you have a fever, difficulty breathing or other severe symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately as it may be influenza A.

AIKEN - @Oliiva, That's great. I hope you will get well soon. And yes, if you are not getting better, go to your GP, in some cases, bacteria can cause a sore throat, and it would require antibiotic treatment. Anyhow, keep me posted if you have further questions.

Oliiva - @Aiken Dao oh ok dokie. just wondering does hot water steam works as well to clear up everything in my chest as well? cause i been doing that here and there, so i would like to know if it works?

AIKEN - @Oliiva, Yes, steam can moist your throat and open your airway, and reduces the irritation caused by inflammation. It is used as a treatment for croup, which is also a viral infection. However, steam doesn’t clean your interior chest, your immune system does that. If you felt chest relief, it’s probably because your chest muscles were relaxing by the stimulation of warm water or temperature. Anyhow, steam is not a bad thing for your body, as long as it’s not too hot.
