Brief Answer:
Probably an upper respiratory tract infection,follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen 500 mg three tablets a day.

I also recommend using a cough suppresant such as Robitussin Cough every eight hours.

I suggest to drink liquids and rest.

If the symptoms continue I suggest to do a lung x-ray to exclude a lung infection.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
