Thank you for contacting Just Answer

What shall I do?

I am sorry to hear. COVID infection can lead to a secondary bacterial infection, however unless you have a worsening cough this seems unlikely and more likely is to do with inflammation post infection.

Are you feeling short of breath with this?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Any medicine

If you are not short of breath and feel well, you could try Ibuprofen. If short of breath, you need to get this assessed urgently.
