HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Running nose, throat pain, headache are usually symptoms of an upper respiratory infection which is usually caused by a virus. In some persons there may be bacterial infection of the throat or ears but this is not common.

You should consider the use a decongestant. This would help the runny nose. Decongestants can be oral or topical. Topical decongestants are OTRIVINE- you would use 1 drop twice a day.
The oral decongestant is normally combined with an antihistamine which would also help your. Some examples are actifed-dm, benadry cough syrup

These medications are available without a prescription

You can also consider the use of paracetamol to help with the headache and throat pain. This is also available without a prescription.

You need to get some rest and drink a lot of fluids.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
