Give it some time: A cold usually involves symptoms of fever, chills, possibly muscle aches, and possibly foul drainage and sore throat. Allergies typically present with itching of eyes throat and palate, watery eyes, mucous or watery nasal drainage. Both colds and allergies have nasal congestion, fatigue, and sneezing as symptoms. Antihistamines and decongestant along with nasal saline are fine to use for both.

Swimmers ear: You most likely have an early case of swimmers ear or otitis externa, an infection of the ear canal skin. It can get worse if not treated. You can try using white vinegar and rubbing alcohol drops twice a day. Avoid water. If it gets worse you need to see a doctor. They may prescribe antibiotic drops. Vinegar and alcohol can also be used as a preventative after swimming.

Allergy/intolerance: It sounds like you have a form of wheat allergy. Make a diary of what aggravates it. Do you have any stomach issues also? Gluten intolerance is not uncommon. Consider allergy testing. If its an allergy and not just an intolerance then you could be successfully desensitized with allergy shots or drops.
