Blocked nose and ears, swollen ears. Pain in the neck while swallowing. Taking antihistamines for allergies. Due to medication?

Hi, I have been feeling as though I have a cold for the last week or so- blocked nose , feeling like my ears are blocked inside... Yesterday my left eye swelled up and past 2 mornings as been closed with watery substance coming out of it. in the last few hours my right hand side of my neck has started hurting when i press on it and when swallowing . I have allergies and use anti-histamines and rapital eyedrops daily so not sure if something has affected my eye? What can I do? Thank you :-)

Hello dear...
All these symptoms suggest that you might be suffering from upper respiratory tract infection.
The watering in eyes can be attributed to insufficient drainage of tears due to blockage of Naso-lacrimal duct.
The management consists of:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain
2. Antihistamines to provide symptomatic relief from cold.
3. Nasal decongestants to relieve nose block.
4. Analgesics to take care of pain & fever(if any)
5. Antibiotics like amoxicillin (if bacterial infection is suspected) will be better to consult an ENT specialist & start treatment.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
