In brief: Pelargonium sidoides

This is likely viral.
Pelargonium sidoides, the root of a geranium native to South Africa, is the best-proven treatment for colds, sinusitis & bronchitis. It's the first thing I take when getting sick & has helped hundreds of my patients. It's widely available in a product called Umcka, sold at health food stores & many pharmacies.
