Cold and Sore THroat after effects.

So I had a cold which led into having a sore throat. I was also caughing up and blowing out alot of mucus.I also had an of and on feelings in my ear as well. The cold is better now but the sore throat tends to go on and off. I also have a slight numb feeling in my jaw area or maybe a slight part on my tongue but its in that area and its on my right side. Is it anything I should be worrying about??

Thanks for the query

It does sound like regualr flu to me. But u start having chest discomfor please see a doctor immediately
For now u can use betadine gargling and for the mucous u can use a cough syrup with salbutamol in it. Take 2tsp three times daily. Skip the morning dose if it makes u sleepy. Lozenges also help
