Hi
Thanks for your query
I think you are suffering from viral infection having sore throat and rhinitis for which antibiotics are of no use. Though as you already started i should ask you to continue it and complete the course. In most of the cases viral infections are self-limiting. So dont worry. It will resolve by itself. Continue the conservative management which you are taking now along with gurgling 4 times daily with luke warm water. Along with the medications you are taking you may take also some anti-histaminics to control sneezing. If infection persists with same intensity even after 10 days better to have a throat swab culture and sensitivity testing to detect the organism and appropriate antibiotics.
Thank you.
