Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for reaching out at Ask A Doctor
I have read your query and understood your concerns
RTPCR is not required , as you have rapid antigen test positive a self quarantine for 14 days and a symptomatic treatment is sufficient ,you could take paracetamol tablet for pain and fever .Eat healthy maintain good high protein diet and drink around 3-4 liters per day .Make sure your oxygen level is 98 above in room temperature do a lot of breathing exercise .I would recommend tablet zincovit and limcee one per day for 1 month for supplementary
Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health
Regards
Dr XXXXXXX
