Hello and welcome to health care magic. Thanks for your query

As per your description it seems like you are having upper respiratory tract infection

It could be due to viral infection, which will subside by just supportive measures like proper hydration, with plenty of oral fluids, bed rest and Paracetamol tablet for fever. You can try salt water gargling to reduce throat congestion. viral infection does not respond to antibiotics.

Sometimes secondary bacterial infection may worsen the symptoms even after above mentioned supportive measure in such cases its recommended to consult physician to start of With appropriate antibiotics.

Wish you all the best
