Pediatrician 's  Response
goo evening, by the symptoms u r describing, u might have acute tonsilitis or quinsy. the block in the nose, the cough, difficulty in swallowing, all falls into the additional symptoms, so kindly see a doctor for correct diagnosis. one more point i would like to stress for that cough of two months is to rule out hyperactive air way disease or tuberculosis. kindly consult a doctor for further care.
