Use dayquil cold and cough formulation!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I will recommend dayquil cold and cough formulation. This has the appropriate active ingredients to address the symptoms of running nose, congestion and occasional cough that you have reported. Take 2capsules every 6-8hours for relief. It should normally take about 5-7days for recover.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me of need be. Most important, update me with your response to this new medication.
