You seem to have a sinusitis and chest infection. You need to see a doctor, get an xray chest to rule out pneumonia. You will also need to take antibiotics for at least 7 days and cough medication. Some basic blood tests are also needed like complete blood count, esr, sputum analysis. I suggest you see your physician soon.

Meanwhile you can take menthol inhalation,bromhexine cough syrup and cough lozenges to sooth your throat. However,only this will not do. You will need antibiotics after procuring prescription from the local doctor.
