Suggest treatment for cough and cold

On Tuesday I went to the doctor for a routine visit, but i also had a bronchial cough/cold which had started a few days prior. I coughed so hard that I had white flashes and peripheral disturbances in my vision. Tuesday and Wednesday I had heart flutters. Tuesday I was given a flu shot and a a prescription for meloxicam, 15mg once per day. I took one on Tues. and one on Wed. but no more since i started feeling nauseous. On Tuesday evening my hands started itching SEVERELY....followed by feet and ankles itching horribly. Wednesday the itching continued and i started taking benedryl. I cannot go without the benedryl or the symptoms worsen. Yesterday (Saturday) evening, my lips swelled severely, the itching was horrendous, and my eye and cheek swelled. I took benedryl and it has subsided. Again, without the benedryl the symptoms return. Any advice?

The problem of severe itching is just because of allergy. For treatment you can take some antibiotic like cefadroxyl or ampoxin after an expert advice along with cetrizine or avil for severe itching and cold. You can take some steroid preferably dexona for 5 days to get rid of allergy problem. you can take syrup ambrodil-s or syrup bro-zedex every 8-12 hours for cough.
