Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
The symptoms of sore throat
, headache and congestion sounds as though you may have a viral upper respiratory tract
With MS and the immunosuppressant medication that you may be using, it may be more difficult to fight off the infection. Normally the common cold
can last for 5 days up to 2 weeks in some adults.
IF you find that with home treatment your symptoms are not improving or worsening and you are not comfortable treating your self , then you should seek medical attention.
Normally to treat the common cold a persons should: increase fluids, rest, use a gargle to help with the sore throat and pain medication if necessary (this would help with the throat and the headache). Nasal congestion
can be treated with steam inhalation, applying a topical rub, topical and oral decongestants.You may want to speak to your doctor before using any medication.
I hope this helps
