Hello,
You seem to be suffering from the seasonal cold. If you are not feeding, you can take antihistamines and analgesics. You can also take steam inhalations to relieve the sinus problem. Wash your eyes with plenty of pure water and if the stickiness persists consult an ophthalmologist. You may also take cough suppressants if there is no sputum. Antibiotics may be needed if the symptoms do not subside within a couple of days and if fever occurs. Please consult a physician for further advice. Take care.
