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.comI 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.
