Thanks for coming to HCM. You might have common cold or allergic rhinitis. You can take over-the-counter preparations of cetrizine OR loratidine along with a combination preparation of pseudoephedrine+phenylehrine+paracetamol; menthol steam inhalation can help further. But if you get fever, headache or problem in swallowing, please contact your local doctor to check if you are developing sinus infection or pharyngitis and need antibiotics.
Wish you get better soon!
