I have a runny nose, cought, and a pink eye, i loss my vocie what do i have?

Greetings Emilia .

These symptoms are suggestive of upper respiratory tract infection which entail rhinitis (nose inflammation) sinusitis (sinus infection both of these causes running nose and pink eye, cough), pharyngitis (throat infection which causes sore throat) and laryngitis (larynx infection (which causes loss of voice and cough). Following would be the treatment protocol;

1) Nasal steroid; decrease inflammation and open up obstruction.
2) Oral decongestants such as pseudoephedrine are often helpful.
3) Topical decongestant for short duration.
4) Antihistamines
5) Steam vaporizer
6) Eucalyptus oil may help
7) Nasal saline irrigation
8) Vitamin C
9) Antibiotics; only if fever, tiredness are present

For treating it naturally; steam inhalation, nasal saline water (salt water) irrigation (can be done by Neti-pot), Vitamin C, Eucalyptus oil inhalation can be done. Following can increase the body immunity so help in overcoming the infection, which is usually viral;

1) Omega 3; Fish oil capsule and flaxseed oil capsule.
2) Ginkgo Biloba
3) Zinc 30 mg.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
