I am sorry about your viral infection.

you should take a zinc supplement 40-50mg daily for 7-114 days with food in your stomach

you should be eating more fruits and vegetables daily to help your immune system to fight the viral infection

avoid alcohol and smoking

drink more water

try to do some daily exercise

make sure you get enough sleep at night time

what fruits are fresh and local in your area?

hi, following up on yesterdays' fever and the voltaren injection:
today i work up with a non itech rash on my neck. checst , abdomen and arms... pinkish rash...
dont know if it's a reaction to the votlaren or is an effect of the virus.. i went to the hospital and they told me to take Prednisolone 5mg one in the morning and one at night and also 1 zyrtec...
i have been having diarrhea multiple times today since i took the first pill of Prednisolone 5mg which now i dont know if t he diarrhea if from that or from the virus ...
the doc checked my threat today too and said i was congested (though i dont have a cough nor runny nose)

the rash most likely was due to your immune system fighting of the viral infection.

the diarrhea could have been due to something you ate or the viral infection

don't worry, your body will fight off the virus and you can get better

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
