Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
I want to understand why you are taking crocin,? Who has suggested you?
Do you have fever also.
Kindly consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
He will examine you and suggest you further.
Crocin isn't required if you do not have fever.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
Bangalore.

You r having cough and cold and no fever as it was not written...so why crocin?
You take antihistamines orally....steam with decongestants. ..gargle with antiseptics. ......drink adequate water
You do not require antibiotics as it is viral and not bacterial...unnecessarily it will add cost to treatment and will cause resistance
