  1. Hi S.Lakra,thank you for posting your query on Medimetry.

    It is common to have throat pain,ear pain and headache after cold .

    You may find relief by taking following medicines:
    Analgesic and Anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen along with Antacid like Rantac,
    Oral decongestant like Phenylephrine and Nasal decongestant drops like Xylometazoline(use decongestant only if you are not suffering from high blood pressure,heart disease, kidney disease, glaucoma-high pressure in the eyes),
    Mucolytic like Ambroxol and
    Antihistamines like Levocetrizine.

    You may need to start Antibiotic after consulting an ENT doctor if you are suffering from high grade fever(more than 101 degree Fahrenheit),pus discharge from ear or nose,severe pain in the throat leading to difficulty in swallowing,etc suggestive of a bacterial infection.

    Also do warm saline gargles.Do steam inhalation.Avoid cold,spicy and oily food.Drink lots of fluids(warm).Avoid dust, smoke and other pollutants.

    Hope this answers your questions.Get well soon.
