Cold and Flu like symptoms – what do I do?

Patient: Hi, I think I am catching a cold but I just had one a couple weeks ago.I have soar throatnasal congestion (right side)and occasional pressure headaches.I talked to my pediatrician when I was sick the first time and she told me it was allergies so I took benadryl pills instead of the “Tylenol cold and flu” syrup that I was taking at the time to get better.It started out by a sneeze and so did the first time except I sneezed more than once.I have been visiting the hospital frequently since before the first time I was sick (friend is in a coma).

Symptoms: Symptoms: nasal congestion (right nasal passage)
soar throat ( stinging when acids make contact )
occasional headaches ( kind of a normal daily thing )
