Question about Indonesian

Do you use “pilek” in non-cold/non-flu situations? I understand the main symptom of “pilek” is “running nose” (having a lot of mucus in your nose). Such a symptom is also seen when you are allergic to pollens, or when you are chopping onions. I want to know whether “pilek” can describe these non-cold cases.
I have another question regarding “pilek”. According to KBBI, it is registered only as a noun. But I saw a sentence “Saya pilek” (I have a cold). Is this sentence grammatically correct (i.e. can I use “pilek” as an adjective without a verb)?
