Correct

- Pseudoephedrine/triprolidine

- Diphenhydramine

- Amoxicillin

- Boric acid

Rationale

Pseudoephedrine/triprolidine (Sudafed) is a good OTC treatment for sinus congestion. It is a decongestant and antihistamine combination. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is an antihistamine only. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that requires a prescription. Boric acid is used to treat fungus or bacterial infections.
