Thanks for the details

This seems like a respiratory tract infection

You must visit the hospital as this require a course of antibiotic

You should give Calpol and Ibuprofen every 4 hourly alternatively

You should also start an anti-histamine like Cetirizine and Robitussin cough

This will help till antibiotic takes it effect

Please do let me know if you have any other question
