Suggest remedy for cold & sore throat

Hello,I ve had a severe cold for a week now with soar throat and chest pain. I ve been treating it myself with over the counter meds. However, today, mucus has started coming out of my eyes in great quantities. My eyes don t hurt but they are very red and uncomfortable. The mucus in my chest is not as much as it s been the past couple of days (thick custard like substance).

Hi.
You have varied problems .
It looks that you are suffering from Pharyngitis and due to infection in the nose there can be a retrograde infection traveled to the middle ears.
The other problems may be related to sinusitis.

I would advise in such a patient the following.
Get a course of a broad spectrum antibiotic, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory medicines. You need to consult an ENT surgeon for a proper examination and getting prescription based medicines.
