Is this hayfever or a cold/flu?

Hey i’m so confused. About 4 days ago i woke up with an extremely sore throat. Then it went away, but the next night i could hardly sleep at all..i kept having to swallow, if i didnt swallow then my throat would get really dry straight away and i would have to cough because of it. Then i started to get a headache and every few hours i would get a temperature..then a day after that i didnt have to swallow as much anymore and the headache etc went away, but today i have a "funny nose" like when you are getting a cold. Its really annoying me i dont know what this is, i thought it was the start of a cold but it has lasted for ages now so im wondering if its maybe hayfever because of the nice weather? In NI it has only just started having nice weather the past few days..The rest has been dull and drab. :/
yous must have took me wrong..i dont have a cold..its like the symptoms you get before a cold comes on..but it has lasted for ages now so im so confused..and my throat isnt sore anymore so it couldnt be strep..my bf has just moved house, could it be anythin in his house?

    Try taking OTC cold medication such as Alka Seltzer Plus. Drink plenty of liquids, especially orange juice. Get bed rest. Use herbal lozenges for your sore throat.

    See a doctor if you don’t feel better in a couple of days.

    I think you just have a cold, but runny nose and sneezing tends to be hay fever.
