Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is likely an upper respiratory tract infection, probably viral. You may need antibiotics like tablet Azithromycin 500 mg once a day along with some antacid like tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg before breakfast once a day for five days. Also, you can take Betadine gargles four times a day. For a cough, you can take syrup Alex (Chlorpheniramine maleate, Dextromethorphan, and Guaifenesin) two spoons whenever needed up to three times a day. You may have Paracetamol for fever, and body pain. Avoid cold food items.
