Brief Answer:
Viral rhinitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
By your symptoms, you seem to be suffering from viral rhinitis.
You can take paracetamol for fever, headache and bodyache , cetrizine tablet and steam inhalation for cold and flu.
However, you should also consult a physician to rule out any other illness causing fever and flu, by appropriate examination and investigations.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
