Common cold.

Treatment plan:

1. Tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once daily.
2. Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg not more than three times daily.

Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Preventive measures:

Drink plenty of fluid and stay hydrated.

Regarding follow up:
