Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

If the symptoms are not going completely then the possibility of the bacterial infection is there so it is better to see a doctor for a thorough examination and you might need antibiotic prescriptions as well. Steam inhalation with menthol drops would help a lot. Put a humidifier in the room and take Sudafed.
