Brief Answer:
Allergy to cold air.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
According to your symptoms , these can be result from breathing cold air through the mouth.
I would like to ask a query
Do you have history of Tonsillitis?

Sore throat,dizziness, headache suggest you might have allergy or viral infection.
Since you have no fever,dizziness went away, you need not worry.

If I were your treating doctor I would suggest you
Steam inhalation 2 times a day
Anti histamines like Cetrizine before bed for 5 days for allergy.
Drink warm water regularly.
Salt water gargles 3 times a day.
Avoid exposure to cold air.
Avoid cold food like ice creams,cold water.

You red spot will disappear within 2-3 days.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.

Hi, I regularly battle with sinus. I have just been on a three day course antibiotics and my headaches still persists. The pain is mainly above my eyebrows. I used anti histamine before, but if I drink it at night, I can't function properly until noon the next day. If I drink it in the morning, I feel wiped out by 4pm. A friend gave me a few celestamine tablets which seem to work better, but then I have to take it when I'm already in bed, as it makes me very wobbly - fast! I have been combining it with Panamor for the last 3 nights. It seems to have worked out by morning because I feel fine when I wake up. The problem is that the sinus headaches start by about 2-3pm and persists until bedtime. I don't want to drink strong painkillers, but it seems to be the only thing that helps. We want to start trying for a second baby soon, but I don't want to until I have my own health under control. Any advice?
