Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection. I recommend to use saline nasal spray. I also suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I suggest to drink liquids and rest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
