Thanks for posting your query.

You seem to be having seasonal cough and cold.

Please do following which should help.

>Take plenty of liquids
>Take more of hot liquids like tea/coffee/soup etc.
>Take light diet; avoid fried foods and cold drinks
>Take tablet paracetamol for body ache and headache. You can take up to 3 tablets in a day.
>Take steam inhalation with eucalyptus oil at least once a day.
>Take proper rest.

This will solve most of your problems.

In case you still do not feel good than you need to visit a doctor and take medicines for this. Further drugs and antibiotics if needed can only be given after physical examination.

I hope this helps.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.

Wishing you best of health.
