Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, it seems like you are having an acute attack of upper respiratory tract infection. It may need a course of oral antibiotics like coamoxiclav or azithromycin.

Oral anti histamines like cetrizine or loratidine alongwith OTC analgesics like acetaminophen or Ibuprofen will help.

Nasal decongestants may be used and steam inhalations as well as XXXXXXX warm saline water gargles will be beneficial.

Avoid sour or greasy diets and fizzy drinks. Also avoid direct exposure to cold and keep yourself warm. Taking warm beverages will also help.

If symptoms persist, X-ray PNS, cultures and ENT specialist review may be needed.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your query. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Regards
