In brief: Common cold

The common cold virus can cause all your symptoms; care is purely supportive in nature.
Antibiotics can't cure a viral infection. If your symptoms persist for more than 10 days or progressively worsen, there may be a role for antibiotic treatment of a sinus infection. Please see a doctor if you're concerned.
