Thanks for writing to us.

Your mother has cold,sneezing and no fever suggest it is common cold.
I were your treating doctor I would suggest an antihistamine like Cetrizine for sneezing one tablet before bed for 3 days. Continue paracetamol if she has fever, body pains and headache.

Steam inhalation for 10-15 minutes 3 times a day.
Avoid cold items like water, ice creams.
Drink warm water.
