Needed help to conclude my running nose, little fever.

Patient : Sir, i have cold from 3 days, and each day i got little fever at evening, tell me what to do
Symptoms:  Nose blocked, voice coming out of throat not good, little fever
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. You seem to have an upper respirator y tract infection. All such infections start as viral but progresses to a superadded bacterial infection needing antibiotic therapy. A good choice antibiotic would be Amoxicillin 500 mg twice daily or Augmentin 625 mg twice daily for 5-7 days depending on the severity. You can discuss with your Physician about starting this medicine. You also need a good antihistaminic like Tab. Levocetirizine 5 mg once daily at bedtime for 2-3 days. This will reduce your nasal congestion and reduce the secretions. Hope this was helpful, Regards.
