I have a sore and itchy throat, runny and sometime stopped up noses, cold, tired feeling, and my ears hurt, is this a cold or sinuses?
Could be both.: It sounds like it could be a viral illness (cold). Many times, these upper respiratory tract infections can cause sinus inflammation and discomfort (congestion, pressure, headache). For most people, this is self limiting - no antibiotics needed. Antiinflammatories, decongestants, nasal saline irrigation can help with the symptoms. But lots of rest is the best medicine. ...Read more

Viral : Viral illnesses such as colds typically last 7-10 days. Symptoms usually include fever, nasal congestion and runny nose, cough, sore throat, and muscle aches. Most of the time it resolves on its own without any other issues. Occasionally it can be due to something more serious that needs treatment. Reasons to seek care are: - fever for more than 3 days or temperature above 104f - if symptoms last longer than 7 to 10 days or are getting worse instead of better - any difficulty opening your mouth or stiff neck - unable to swallow - severe pain - bleeding in the throat or from the nose - redness or swelling on the outside of the neck - any difficulty breathing or noisy breathing in the meantime, taking Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for pain, using a humidifier in the room where you sleep, drinking plenty of fluids such as hot tea/broth or cold liquids and a spoonful of honey can help. Good luck! ...Read more
Allergy: The few symptoms that you described are classical symptoms consistent with allergic rhinitis. The nasal congestion is due to engorgement of blood vessels in the side of the nasal cavity and swelling of the tissue around these vessels (called edema). These symptoms can be treated with otc antihistamines such as Claritin or allegra. If these meds do not help, see an allergist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Here's some guidance: Blocked nasal passages can be from a mechanical obstruction or the lack of sensed airflow. Examples of an obstruction include a septal deviation, enlarged turbinates, excessive mucus production like during a cold or from allergies, or nasal sidewall collapse. Your nose may not sense airflow from too much swelling, trauma, or prior nasal surgery. A good start is to see an ENT to perform an exam. ...Read more
