Thanks for your query...

As you have been suffering from cold for a week and you have taken OTC drugs... Till your symptoms have not subsided...

So maybe there is secondary bacterial infection...
Its better you consult your doctor... He may prescribe you some antibiotics...
That should take care of your problem...

Meanwhile... Drink only boiled and cooled water...

I hope this answers you query... If you have any follow up queries, i can answer them too...

Wish you a speedy recovery...

Thank You,
