It may be Viral infection.
You should take an Antihistamine, Antibiotic like Azithromycin and Anti inflammatory drugs.
You have to take X ray PNS/CT scan PNS to rule out Sinusitis.
Please avoid the triggering factors like Dust,Cold climate etc.
Please consult ENT surgeon and get examined.A deviated nasal septum in the Nose can also cause all these symptoms.

Dentist Dr. Farah Hussain's  Response
Hi and welcome,
i suspect you are suffering from acute pharyngitis which is mostly bacterial or sometimes viral infection seen post flu infection.
it is associated with sore throat , runny nose , fever and cold.
I would suggest you to start with antibiotic Augmentin 375mg twice daily along with analgesics and antihistamine like cetrizine for 3 to 5 days.
mouth gargling with antiseptic mouth wash like chlorhexidine gives soothing effect to throat.
if symptoms do not subside with this . you got to consult an ENT surgeon for evaluation.
i hope this helps,
take care.
