Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query
According to your history you are just having common cold, usually it is caused by Rhino virus. It lasts for 1 week.For few people it may extent to few more days.
If you have only cold take Tab Levocetrezine 10mg twice daily, morning and night after food for 3 days.
If you have fever you can take Tab Paracetamol 500mg during fever.
If you have cough with sputum you may need to take antibiotics Tab Azithromycin 500mg once daily for 3 days.
Drink filter/boiled water to prevent secondary bacterial infection.
Do steam inhalation twice daily

If you have any doubt you are welcome, otherwise kindly close the thread and rate it
Take care
Regards
