It seems that you might be having viral infection.
If you do not get well within a day or two,there might be chances of having bacterial infection as well and so you may require one antibiotic medicine course after consulting your doctor.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and take care.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

With all the symptoms, this looks like viral infection complicated with bacterial respiratory tract infection.

For this you should consult your doctor once and he may start you on antibiotic (I prefer azithromycin 500 mg OD), paracetamol 650 mg three times a day and antihistamine like cetrizine. Based on examination you may require chest x ray for diagnosis.
You also required to do concentrated salt water gargle 3 times a day and steam inhalation. Hope this will help you.

Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further examination and management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries. Wish you good health. Take care.
