Omicron test positive? You should have these medicines in your medicine chest as a precaution

Even vaccinated people can get infected with Corona. What medicines you need and how to proceed to fight the disease from home.

Munich – Omikron is spreading throughout Europe, and it is likely that many more people will become infected with the corona virus in Germany, even if this usually results in mild courses for those who have been vaccinated. It is therefore advisable to prepare for this case and stock up on the medicine chest. Because once the test is positive, quarantine is mandatory.

What medication do you need if you get infected with Corona?

If you are Corona* positive, you should never go to the doctor first – on the contrary. The disease is cured at home if the course is mild, although a call to a doctor can help fight the virus in a way that is tailored to the patient.

Painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen should not be missing from any medicine cabinet anyway. These are also useful for the corona virus and the omicron variant, because headaches and body aches can occur. However, it is important not to fight a fever immediately with painkillers, because this is an instrument of the body’s immune system and activates immune cells.

According to research by the ARD on the basis of recommendations from the federal government, the federal states and the Robert Koch Institute*, medicines for coughs and colds should be used “with caution”. Gentle methods of achieving improvement can be natural products such as elderberry or eucalyptus to support the natural function of the upper mucous membranes. According to research by the NDR , essential oils from thyme, rosemary, sage or laurel can also be used for this purpose and to alleviate the urge to cough, as can the tannins in green tea. It is recommended to gargle or inhale several times a day.

Important in the fight against Corona: Drink a lot of water and avoid exertion

The general rule is: drink plenty of water, rest, avoid any physical exertion and air out regularly. If the fever rises above 39 degrees, calf wraps can help.

If the symptoms do not improve after a week, you should call your family doctor or the medical emergency service on 116117. If shortness of breath sets in, do not hesitate to call the emergency number 112.

The effectiveness of self-therapy with intravenous vitamin C or zinc has not yet been substantiated. It is therefore advisable to refrain from using these so-called “secret weapons” against Corona or to only use them in consultation with a doctor. (cg) * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
