General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi and thanks for the query,
The symptoms you describe are symptoms of a normal common cold or a probable viral rhinopharyngitis. It is possible that bacteria could cause similar symptoms, but viruses are more common causes. treatment is mainly symptomatic. Draining the nasopharyngeal passages, giving local anti histamines of general if necessary to reduce congestion and simple analgesics or non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs would be sufficient to control the pain of fever. However, a clinical evaluation might be useful to exclude a bacterial cause which might require antibiotics. We cannot talk of allergies in this case, for it needs to be repeated, acute, almost permanent, should have a past history of family history of allergies or other atopic conditions.
I suggest you visit your primary care physician for a proper clinical evaluation and management.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
