Hi I have a question, my husband has been having these common cold like symptoms for over a month now. The symptoms are consistent with runny nose, a light cough, a light congestion, and no fever or ear ache. We have tried everything from humidifiers, Mucinex, and ibuprofen. Today he woke up with a swollen eye. Please help were not sure if its allergies to something else but its been going on for way to long now.
