Avatar f tn m allergic to cold medicine, so I always use natural remedies. As soon as I feel a cold coming on, I double my Vitamin C. I also steam fresh mint leaves for congestion and make and my own vitamin water using mint leaves, fresh cut lemons and limes. I can usually kick a cold within 2-3 days using these remedies. Good luck and feel better!
4536442 tn?1358820448 Hey ladies do u know of any good remedies for getting rid of a cold??
Avatar f tn You can use a saline nasal rinse or spray for nasal congestion or dryness. Also be sure to maintain adequate hydration, typically 8-12 eight ounce glasses of water daily unless directed otherwise by your doctor. It is important you talk with your doctor prior to starting any new prescription or over-the-counter remedies, and to let your doctor know of any ailments or new symptoms you experience.
Avatar f tn Also eating garlic is good, not really pleasant but it works. Google cold home remedies and they can properly tell you the steps. Be patient they work. I had a nasty cough with mucus and didn't want to take medicine to be safe.

437027 tn?1286831178 My nine month old has a runny nose and a cough. Does anyone have any remedies that are safe that can help? Of course there is no medicine that you can give a baby for these symptoms but everytime he coughs it seems like it hurts him. I hesitate to put him on antibiotics again unless I have to. I know it's not good for him and he has already been on them at least 3 times since he was born.
6807839 tn?1386436725 Congestion and allergy/cold like symptoms are common during pregnancy and unfortunately if it is not a cold, you will just have to deal with the congestion. I started getting congestion when I found out I was pregnant and am STILL dealing with it. The doctor said it was rhinitis and that chances were it wouldn't go away until I gave birth.... So I have been dealing with it for about 7, almost 8 months of it and nothing has helped me.

1399124 tn?1401020004 So hubby has had a cold for almost a month now.it went away a few days and then came back. he is snuffy and dragged out with little energy and is experiencing much coughing and sore throat.Thing is he is taking vitamin C daily as well as his normal multivitamins. He takes Neo citron which he says sometimes helps. He just stated echinachea today and also takes Buckley's and benelyn cough syrup. He is still sick and does not know what to do as it does not look like it is letting up.
Avatar f tn ve had a sore throat, nagging cough and really bad congestion for almost a week. To top it off I just woke up with pink eye yesterday. So I have prescription eye drops for that. I've been taking Robitussin which doesn't seem to be helping the other symptoms at all. Does anybody have any baby safe remedies?

Avatar n tn Anyone else suffering from Congestion all the time. Since about 4 months along I literally have a stuffy nose everyday and worse at night when I'm trying to sleep. Air purifier and medicine has not helped...any suggestions maybe home remedies?
Avatar m tn Ear congestion - Blocked eustachian tubes. A bad head cold turned into a bad sinus and ear infection. Then, my ears got so congested it was hard to hear. I tried a variety of things. Finally, I went to the ear doctor, and she suggested an "ear popper". It is a small, handheld device which gently blows air into your nose. I guess it equalizes pressure inside and outside the eardrum or some such. After a day, my ears were clear most of the time.
Avatar f tn I'm suffering because I'm avoiding medication. Any natural remedies you might know? Does this flu affect the baby in any way? I'm coughing like crazy, can't breathe from my nose, feeling weak & feverish. Hope this goes away soon...
