Thank you very much for the useful information.

This means you have a mild infection and hopefully its gonna settle down in few days completely.

You can take Nyquil (which will relieve cough, fever, runny nose and give you a good sleep at night also.

I don't think any thing else is needed at the moment.

Honey water (anti-inflammatory) and steam inhalation will also be helpful.

And keep a good hydration.
