I think I already know the answer but can you take anything for a cold while pregnant? I'm 37 weeks and the runny/blocked nose/head is driving me insane! Worst thing is it only started today

Panadol and a saline nasal spray. I hate nasal sprays but it did help break up and dislodge to goo. Hope you feel better soon.

You can use some vicks as well both as a rub and steam inhalation. Lots of fresh lemon, hot water, ginger and lemonade drinks. Normal strepsils are ok.

Panadol is good to take for the aches and pains, and honey and lemon in boiling water does wonders for the throat. I've also read panadol helps stop the urge to cough. My chest and belly is so sore from coughing so long, and of course, the asthma starts to play up!

maybe touch base with your OB to check before a vicks inhalation. Mine was ok but sounds like others arent!

I used Vicks vaporizer during my pregnancy with DD. My obs said it was fine.
