Thanks for your query.

All these symptoms suggest that you might be suffering from upper respiratory tract infection(most probably viral infection)

The management consists of:
1. Drinking of warm fluids & salt water gargle to reduce throat pain
2. Antihistamines to provide symptomatic relief.
3. Analgesics like Paracetamol to take care of pain & fever
4. Maintain adequate hydration & proper nutrition.

However, if symptoms still persist or aggravate, it will be better to get a Routine Blood & Urine investigation done.
Antibiotics need to be started if bacterial infection is suspected.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.

what are the causes of respiratory tract infection
Answered by Dr. Polash Sannigrahi 6 hours later

Thanks for your follow up query.

Respiratory tract infection is mainly of viral or bacterial etiology, though sometimes it can also be caused by certain fungi.
The predisposing factors could be reduced body immunity due to chronic illness, intake of certain medications (specially steroids) for a prolonged time, exposure to cold & damp environment, dietary deficiency of certain vitamins & minerals, poor hygiene, stress, etc.

The treatment will vary depending upon the cause.

Hope I have been able to answer your question.
Please let me know if you have any other queries.
Take care.
