Cold, Sneezing, Cough

Been having runny nose, sneezing with white or pale yellow phlegm, phlegm buildup in throat. Coughing with white to pale yellow phlegm with pain in throat immediately afterwards. Also have light headache and pain around the eyes after coughing and neck and back pain as well as pain in the jaw joint. Sometimes get cramps in lower abdomen after an episode of severe coughing. As for diet, have included rusk, soups, and dry biscuits and have stopped taking spicy and oily food. Drinking only warm water. I have been taking New Dolo Cold tablets in morning and night after food as well as Cofsils AX cough syrup 3 times daily for the past 3 days. Also am doing warm salt water gargling whenever I get throat pain. Please advise whether i should be taking these medicines or stop and take any other medicines. Am getting max bed rest as i can. Is sun bathing good for me? I also have vitamin D & B12 deficiency and high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol. Also have fatty liver.

Drink plenty of water,eat soft foods like cooked cereal, mashed potatoes, soft fruits, yogurt and soft-cooked eggs...give adequate rest to your body..Avoid spicy foods or acidic foods. Gargle with warm salt water. gargling several times a day can help relieve throat pain....you will require antibiotics to clear up infection..High LDL-C can be managed and controlled successfully with lifestyle changes, medications, or a combination of these approaches. Implementing lifestyle modifications, such as a low-fat and high-fiber diet, increased physical activity, and weight control, might decrease LDL-C levels by up to 20%–30%...consult physicians they will guide you further
