Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You seem to be suffering from Upper Respiratory tract infection (URTI) associated with Post Nasal Drip.
If you have severe coughing with sputum production, get a Chest X-ray Done to rule out Pneumonia.
For URTI, I advise the following:
1. To take an antibiotic like Azithromycin.
2. To take an anti-allergic like Levocetirizine
3. To do warm saline gargles.
4. To do steam inhalation
5. To take Paracetamol on as or when required basis for fever and body pains.
Share my opinion with your doctor before you act upon it.
I hope it helps.
