Colds: Hi you are describing the classic signs of a cold or "upper respiratory infection" if this is persisting or worsening you may need antibiotics or at the least a visit with your health care provider to make sure there is nothing worse going on.

This is consistent with a viral upper respiratory infection.Most resolve or improve in a few days. Slight jaw pain when swallowing may mean there is pressure on the inner ear from blowing your nose. Over the counter medications including a nasal spray, and stop nose blowing may help.

Allergies/cold/etc: It could be allergies, cold, and other infections. You should go to your doctor to have an evaluation and get a diagnosis and treatment.
