Hi doc, yesterday i visited Summit, Subang Jaya mall and happen to press the life button and accidentally scratch my eyebrow area later on. After reaching home, i started to feel body heat and body ache. say from 5pm till now 5am the body ache and body heat is still there mildly. Not sure if it is a fever but body does feel heaty and uncomfortable. Body feels tired as well. There is no cough or any sore throat symptoms as for yet. What should i do? Took panadol and still the same. Ive started staying in my room since i come back. Should i visit a doc to check on the covid test? I took the online assessment here but it says im fine. But body is heaty, tired and little pain. Do advice doc. Thank you.
