Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thanks for posting your query here.

The symptoms you are saying about correlates with pharyngitis. But you had the antibiotic within a short time. Good. This reduces the chance of spreading of the infection. Please continue the antibiotic for 5 days. For cold you can take some antihistaminics. Dolo 650 can reduce your headache. The tiredness is because of the antibiotics.

Please take multivitamins to reduce the tiredness.

Take lots of fluids and do some steam inhalation which will ease you.

If the symptoms wont subside within 2 days get an ENT check along with blood check.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

That is the usual course of infection...viral or bacterial...
Fever goes away in a couple of days; other symptoms take some more time
Continue the drugs / eat well / ensure enough fluids...
Rest may not be much help... If it does not settle down by the end of the week, you will need re-examination and possibly investigation...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
