Thanks for your question.

The duration of symptoms indicates that this is now a bacterial infection involving the upper respiratory tract as most viral infections improve in 2 weeks time.

You may need anti bacterial antibiotics to be prescribed to you for treatment of this infection.Please visit a doctor to have proper medicine prescribed to you.

This is my initial answer.Please reply if you need any clarification.
