Severe pain in face and cold with running nose


Q: Hello Doctor,
For the past few days I've been experiencing severe pain on the left side of my face, starting from the forehead to the upper gums. I have a severe cold, and had faced fever at my office. I took a paracetomol and the fever went down in a couple of hours. today morning, i again had a fever with severe pain at the above-mentioned area. During all this time the pain was noticeable but one could ignore it. but, now in the evening, it's gotten much worse and i'm currently holding a hot-water bag against that area and typing with my right hand. My question is, can i join office tommorrow, or would i have to stay in again. if it is possible could you let me know about some medicine to ease the pain.
Thank you for your precious time.
