I've ended up with a bad cold and was wondering if anyone has some tips on how best to treat it?
I'm currently 15 weeks pg and I know I cant use Codral but is there anything I can use? I feel awful!!!!

Tips for handling a bad cold?!!

Manuka honey and panadole.
I have honey, lemon and ginger tea. Hot showers, baths, lots of steam. Heat packs when I have a sore throat.
Most throat Lollies and things are unsuitable for pregnant ladies. I can't remember what it is they have in them but my chemist said they were a big no no.

There is herbal lozenges (?) called throat clear. My pharmacist said they were fine to take during pregnancy.

This is a weird one but an old family thing that my grandmother & mum have always done & swear by it. Cut an onion in half & put both pieces beside ur bed of a nite. It draws any bacteria etc out and absorbs into the onion and lessens the duration & severity of colds & flu's. It makes the room really smelly but I am a huge believer of it & do it :-)

Same thing has happened to me. Lemsip. The best. You can use it when pregnant and it can give you up to 4 hours relief.

If you have a bad cough put heaps of Vicks vapor rub on the soles if your feet before bed, socks on top, will stop it within 15 minutes.
