Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You are having probable respiratory tract infection. Do you have any chest pain, any sputum while coughing. What is the colour of the sputum. It is best that you do steam inhalation for now. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. You can take Paracetamol 500mg, 3 tablets a day every 6 hours, under medical supervision for relief of fever. It is best you get examined by your Doctor to rule out sinusitis, lung infection which needs good antibiotic treatment which can be given only after thorough checkup.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Please visit a dr personally, who can examine you, espcially auscultate your chest. If the phlegm/sputum is yellow/green you may need medicaiton. If its whitish/watery then the treatment is different.

For coryza/cold best treatment is steam inhalation. Rest, plenty of water/soups/juices are required.

For fever paracetamol can be taken , as and when fever comes.

Or you may see a homeopath in your vicinity. Please avoid self-medication.
