Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
The symptoms what you have been describing appears that you have been down with upper respiratory tract infection. Kindly do the following to overcome them.
1. Do salt water gargling with warm water thrice a day.
2. Use steam inhalation to liquefy the mucous for easy drainage.
3. Take mucolytic-decongestant medications in the form of syrup containing Ambroxyl/Bromhexine, Guaifenesin and Chlorpheniramine maleate as ingredients.
4. In case you feel feverish and body aches, you need to take Tablet. Paracetamol with Ibuprofen combination after food.
5. Take medicated lozenges for throat soothening effect when necessary.
Strictly avoid consumption of cold items like cold drinks and ice cream.
Your symptoms should getter soon by adopting to above measures.
