I've had a cold for about a week and have been taking OTC medication but it doesn't seem to be helping much. I also seem to get them often please help?

In brief: Not a cold
Symptoms of allergies can often be mistaken with cold and flu.
Generally, a cold that does not go away can be related to other underlying causes. Seasonal allergies are often one of the causes. Your doctor will be able to help you distinguish your symptoms to get a proper diagnosis.
