Sneezing and congestion are the standard complaints of any head cold. Here are the three basic kinds. Running/drippy/sneezy nose! This is where the antihistamine comes in. Nose/nostrils clear but sinuses filled? Afrin or Sudafed are the goals. Back of your throat slimy or heavy productive cough? You need an expectorant, like mucinex. Several? I prefer to mix and match, but Mucinex-D is the best way. This is important to nail down. Most people think they have a sore throat during a cold, however this is usually (if you truly only have a cold) from a post-nasal drip, meaning there is mucus just dripping down your throat, making your throat irritated. Same with upset stomach, though too much meds can do this too.
Hope all this helps. Just remember stay home, sneeze into the crux of your arm or shoulder, if you sneeze into something make sure it is disposable and wash your hands. Airborne is a ripoff. Feel better.
