A viral upper respiratory tract infection is likely. If it's less than 5 days old I recommend rest,drinking lots of fluids, gargling with warm salt water & bathing eyes with warm water compresses. if symptoms have been longer & discolored nasal mucus or coughing of discolored sputum occurs or continues, , contact your MD for an exam & possible antibiotic prescription.
