Ugh, how awful to be sick post-rhinoplasty. If anything, it seems like nsaids like ibuprofen (which is what both advil and motrin are) would decrease swelling. I don't know about antibiotics. I'm sure you could call your plastic surgeon's office and get some guidelines on caring for a cold or infection even when you're 4 months post-op. Drink lots of liquids to keep your secretions thinner. I found those Breathe-Right nasal strips to be extremely helpful.  Hope this helps!
