Sounds more like allergies....you could try claritin or any kind of Tylenol cold meds

It's strange 'cuz it's not. I work at home and I'm indoors all the time...no a.c., no nature, no animals... so it's impossible to be that. It's a stupid cold..I have tried paracetamol (this is what my doc gave me) but...so fac no good. I am drinking tones of lemonade...but it gives me serious heartburn so I have to drink milk as well...which ia kind of unpleasant for my stomach... And I am still feeling sick :((

Lots and lots of steam and hot drinks helped me! I don't really like tea so I boil water and add a slice of lemon to it, also try turning the hot water on in the shower and pointing it at the wall while you sit in the tub! Someone suggested that on here months ago and I've been doing that when I need relief :)  For the eyes, try a cold wash cloth over them for a while, try to nap while you do it or at night before bed so you'd keep it on longer, I hope this helps!
