Viral Upper Respiratory Infection and Pink Eye

Exactly a week ago a came up with a severe swollen and sore throat and was rapid tested for strep which came back negative. My throat was not very red, mostly swollen, and did not have white spots. I believe the infection was viral, though this wasn't tested. It cleared up in 3-4 days, now 7 days later it is still a little sore but better. Once my throat started to improve my nose became more congested as well as pressure in my ears with green/yellow snot and sometimes blood. The congestion continues to today. Now 7 days after the initial symptoms of my sore throat I have pink eye in one eye that has a thick discharge. With three ailments, would it be a good idea to ask for an antiviral from the doctor? Or should I just continue to ride it out?
