Brief Answer:
Upper respiratory tract infection, symptomatic treatment

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your query.
Based on the information provided by you, it appears to be upper respiratory tract infection.
Most of the upper respiratory tract infection are viral in nature, and are self Limiting and require only symptomatic treatment.
You have already taken course of antibiotic so presently I would have suggested you to take tablet ricifast plus thrice a day for three days. Along with it steam inhalation with few drops of eucalyptus oil in it three to four times a day. Warm salt water gargaling for 3 days. You can suck lozenges like strepsil or cofsil two to three per day. Take rest for a day or two. Drink lots of water especially warm water. With this measures you will be fine in 3 to 4 days.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
