Sore throat, runny nose, cough, headache, low grade fever. What should I do?

Hi, I have been sick with cold-like symptoms for over two weeks now. It started as a normal cold with sore throat and a runny nose . I took paracetamol-based cold & fly medicine. After a few days the sore throat was cured and the runny nose was better but then I developed a bad cough , first dry then with mucus , and almost lost my voice. I ve taken Mucosolvan for 3-4 days and the cough got better, though it s not gone, and my voice returned to normal. I hoped to get better but, since yesterday, I ve had headaches and a low-grade fever. I also feel very tired (I ve had 12-hour work days for the past couple of weeks and, even on the weekends, I can t seem to sleep more than 8 hours even though I feel my body needs more than that to recover). What should I do/take?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you are having respiratory tract infection presenting with sore throat, cold, cough, head ache, fever...
This requires treatment by antibiotics and anticold drugs. Since you have taken only cold medicines and mucosolvan but not taken any antibiotics, the infection has not responded.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for antibiotics and further treatment.

Thank you
