I have a stuffy nose cough and headache. Started a few days ago

Thanks Marvin for the additional information
It sounds like you probably have a viral illness
This can take about 5 -7 days to fully get over
But things that you can do are:

1. motrin and tylenol for fever and pain
2. decongestant such as sudafed, phenylephrine for congestion
3. dextromethorphan for cough (or guafenesin)

In the meantime- rest. drink plenty of fluids.

If you feel that you are getting worse despite the advice above- or if you are don't feel better after 10 days, then see a physician

i hope that this helped!

please leave positive feedback if it did :-)
