Brief Answer:
Upper respiratory tract infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query.
In my opinion, you might be having upper respiratory tract infection.
If I were your treating doctor, I would have prescribed penicillin antibiotics + anti inflammatory medicines for 5 to 7 days+antihistamines andmucolytics combination drugs twice a day for 5 days. You can get these medication with your local doctor prescription.
Do Betadine gargling twice daily. Avoid oily and cold items.
Steam inhalation regularly.
All these are prescription medicines, so I would advise you to consult with the doctor and get treated.
Hope my answers have helped you
pleased to help you further. Thanks.
