Brief Answer:
Upper respiratory infection

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for question.
You seem to have caught with inflammation may or may not be because of allergy.
Sorethroat and ticking that with air gasping indicate upper respiratory tract inflammation. since you have one sided runny nostril and eye it could be sinusitis too.
Good thing is it is not spread out and do not have fever n body pains. simple steps now can help control.
1) Gargling with warm salt water thrice a day.
2) Sinus washes with saline if you have neti pot.
3) Anti allergy medication like Claritin.
4) A lot of fluids including lemon tea, chicken soups.

I do have fever, i have had it for about 4 days (fever)
I have been taking clarentyne daily as i thought it was allergies to begin with but dont seem to do much and hve been also trying nasonex nose spray. I am sneeZing but the dripping is all one sided. Sore throat is gone now and my head ache is in my eyebrows.
