it seems from the history that you are having sore throat, headache, allergies, chest congestion and lump on the adams apple..
Claritin is a anti allergic drug and it is used for treatment of allergic diseases.
Since your symptoms point to super added infection you need to take antibiotics and decongestants.
Salt water gargling will provide symptomatic relief to sore throat.

Thank you
