Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

Do you have any known allergies to certain food or medication ?

Do you have diabetes ?

It appears that you may have not suited well with the Cetil medication because of possible allergy or severe infection. Viral infections tend to not respond to Antibiotics like Cetil but usually Vitamins will do the trick in helping spontaneous cure by body immunity.

Continue taking the Factive and Vitamins as your Doctor advised. Eat a diet with plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of fresh fruit juice and water. These help to fight various infections especially viral infections.

Do steam inhalation for relief from severe cold. Take a Paracetamol tablet for relief from headache and body pain, under medical supervision.

Wishing speedy recovery.
