The symptoms you have may not be due to any serious condition neither it is related with the history of grandmother and cousin, your symptoms could be due to allergic disorders and in my opinion if this not the severe condition then it may not needs any treatment but it will come around on its own, just have some hot drinks steam inhalation.

If this condition is due to viral infection and it is a severe one then you can try Tab Acetaminophen with Ibuprofen as per needed and in that case also it may not need any specific treatment. Everything will be fine soon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
