Brief Answer: I suggest you to take steam inhalations Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. You seem to be having a severe respiratory infection. I suggest you to take steam inhalations and warm water gurgles. You may try over the counter drugs like cetrizine or loratidine. Benadryl syrup can also help. Hope I am clear. All the best
