Thanks for your query. You seem to be having a common cold, which is usually viral in origin. The best way to recover would be to take adequate rest, plenty of hot soups and nutritious diet. For easing the throat irritation I recommend you to do salt water gargles and avoid acidic foods. For the cold you can take any antihistamines like cetirizine. Steam inhalations will also benefit the nasal congestion. Hope this helps and wish you a very speedy recovery.
