Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you are mostly having viral upper respiratory tract infection (URTI).
Viral infection can cause coughing, burning in head and generalized body ache.
So follow these steps for better symptomatic relief.
1. Avoid dust and pollution.
2. Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep your self hydrated.
3. Take combination of antihistamine and anti inflammatory drugs.
4. Do warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
5. Avoid oily and spicy food. Avoid hard to chew food.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
