Brief Answer:
It seems to be recovering

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

From your description I think it will recover in 5-7 days.
If it does not recover, then go for antibiotics like Amoxiclav for 3- days.

Steam inhalation/warm saline gargles will help.
Take paracetamol for fever, if any.

Otherwise no specific medicines are indicated for now.
