Health Concerns:Home remedies for cold during pregnancy
2007-05-14
Name: KR Hi all,

I' m 6 weeks pregnant and I have been having cold since 10 days. The first 4 days was very bad, my voice was changed and i couldn' t talk due to throat pain & cold. I didn' t take any counter medications, I just took some home remedies, it has reduced the cold and cough and my voice has come back. But I still have cold & cough accompained with mucous. I feel really terrible running to the restroom to blowout the nose and spit out the mucous. I have nausea all day long, which all together makes me feel bad and am not feeling like eating or doing anything.

If anyone knows and have tried any home rememdies other than honey pepper/warm milk with pinch of turmeric and cracked black pepper, please let me know and hope this topic would be helpful to many who are suffering from cold and cough. Thanks!
