hi thanx for the query. I can understand ur concern. according to ur statement u have been suffering from sore throat,headache,high fever, bodyache,cough with rashes and ur family doctor's preliminary assumption is Covid-19 positive. she is has been home quarantined and ur query is whether the medications that she has been taken is correct according to her symptoms or not. yes her current medications r absolutely right according to her sufferings.she can gurgle with salt mixed luke warm water 3-4times daily. monitor her oxygen saturation rate by pulse oximetry.and if possible then do the antigen and antibody test for Covid-19. if her clinical symptoms r improved by taking her current medications,then let her continue her medications. but if symptoms r not totally improved then inform me and i will try to lessen her suffering. in case of any other query knock me and I will try to reply u further.
