For the past 5 days I've had a really bad cough which has phlem come up. My throat feels swollen when I touch it. I also have developed a runny nose and an unbearable headache which won't go away!

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding bad headache, running nose, sore throat with cough and phlegm. This is for last 5 days. You have taken cough syrup but you have got no relief.

Considering the symptoms it appears as you are suffering from acute upper respiratory tract infection with involvement of sinuses and your pain in ear may be due to eustachian tube obstruction.

You are now advice to take-

(a) Antibiotic- preferably broad spectrum.

(b) Anti inflammatory & analgesic.

(c) Decongestant & mucolytic.

(d) Steam inhalation.

(e) Antacids.

I hope this will help you.
