I was found COVID-19 positive through the RT-PCR test with a CT value of 23.48. I am in home quarantine in my company's occupational health center. I have a cough, and sometimes I feel my forehead is warm, but the thermometer reflects a reading of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit when checked by placing it in the armpit. The nurse has recommended the following medicines:
1) Tablet Okacet-L.
2) Tablet Doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules.
3) Mucinac 600 mg tablets.
4) Vitamin C tablets.
5) Zincovit tablets.
6) Dolo 650 mg only to be taken when the fever comes.
I am doubtful whether I should take it or not as my forehead seems warm, but the thermometer shows a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

I read your query and I am sorry for the COVID-19 positive test results.
Your body temperature, according to the thermometer, is normal. However, if you have an associated body ache, you can take a tablet of Paracetamol once a day accordingly. You can do water sponging also over the forehead but avoid it if you get chills. Continue taking rest and medicine as prescribed to you. Take a pulse oximeter reading three times a day. Watch for other symptoms which need the medical attention of a doctor. Maintain adequate hydration, avoid cold food or water, and take adequate rest. Keep yourself covered with a mask and be in a well-ventilated room. Maintain other COVID-19 appropriate behavior. Follow up if necessary for further guidance.
