allergies can be superimposed by infections, especially viral infections, can give same symptoms as having colds, trust there are drug stores where you currently are, saline nasal washes, salt water gargles, plenty of fluids and rest as much as you can will definitely help, allergy meds with decongestants, unless hypertensive, taken regularly would help too,antibiotics later if those measures fail
