Detailed Answer:
As the cough is with sputum, if sputum is yellow to greenish suggests of infection.
Which would need antibiotics.

I prescribe Tab. AUGMENTIN625 along with Montair LC tab in my practice. This would need prescription by doctor.

For head ache she can take tab. Hifenac P 2 times a day for 3 days.

Give her steam inhalation with karvolplus voporub 2 times a day for 3 days will reduce her sinusitis.


Ask her to gargle warm water 3 times a day.

Any issue do follow up

Take care.
