Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a respiratory tract infection. I recommend using a mucolytic for the cough such as Mucinex. I also suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. Based on the fact that you have three weeks with the symptoms, I suggest to take oral antibiotics such as Augmentin 625 mg. I recommend to drink liquids and rest.

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

Regards,
