With the available described symptoms, you are most likely suffering from acute viral Presence of sore throat, red eyes and cold feeling suggests the diagnosis.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take complete antibiotic course (to prevent secondary bacterial infection), combination of decongestants and anti allergic, mucolytics and anti-inflammatory.

Avoid cold drinks, oily foods, yogurt.
Perform gargles three times in day; a glass of lukewarm water along with a pinch of salt.
You should take proper bed rest.
Recovery may take 3-4 days as viral infections has short duration span (3-5 days).

Hope that helps.
