Brief answer...given below
Detailed answer...
Thanks for the query.
Your symptoms suggest you are having cold virus.
Treatment involves ...
Avoiding ice cold drinks
Take tablet paracetamol for fever or bodyache
You can take ALLEGRA  180 mg once a day for 3-4 days.It would help in stopping the running nose.
Put OTRIVIN nasal drops twice a day if your nose gets blocked.
Since it is a viral problem,there is no need to take any antibiotic.
You should be all right in next 3-5 days.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Hi, My boyfriend has suffered from nasal problems for about 4 years now. He cant breathe through his nose all throughout the year, it is worse when pollen is around but even when it snows he cant breathe. He has has an allergy test which has come back negative to dust etc.. He cant breathe properly when he eats or sleeps and has now become dependant on using otrivine each night just to get to sleep. Some times his breath smells and he is constantly sniffing. What is the next thing for us to do as he wont visit his gp again. Thanks
