Hi, thanks for writing in XXXXXXX

It is very common to have rhinitis in Delhi region in these days. Usually it is due to viral infection. It can be managed on symptomatic basis by taking antipyretic like Combiflam and regular steam inhalation. It will take at least 7 days to get relief.

I will suggest you to have a consultation with ENT specialist, because if there is throat congestion then antibiotics have to be started.

I hope that you have got your query answered. Any follow up is always welcome.
