You may have both: A 2 day episode of sweating at night sounds like a viral upper respiratory tract infection. Green nasal discharge may be the start of a viral rhino-sinusitis. The general rule is that if you are getting worse after 5 days, an antibiotic is appropriate, and if you are not better in 10 days, an antibiotic should be considered. Bottom line is if not better after 5 days see your physician.
