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!
Good old fashioned steam. I'm on week 20 of a stuffed nose. The best way to ease it I found was to fill a bowl of hot boiling water with a little salt, throw a towel over my head, and stick my head over the bowl. I tried the nose rinse, but it doesn't do much unless it can get through your nose, which is difficult when its completely blocked. Invest in some good kleenex, your nose can get raw really fast.
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.
Hello everyone! I need some help. I have an awful cold, nasalcongestion, deep hard and painful cough, ears hurt, sore throat, the works. I'm 14 weeks. What works? I'm miserable and need some relief, I can't sleep because of this. Medicines or remedies? Please share.
I spoke to my local pharmacist last week because I had a bad cold and needed congestion relief. She told me do not use Vicks. Im only 20 weeks but she said it can cause pre term labor. I didn't want to take the chance. She said my safest bet was to sleep, drink water and put my head over a humidifier.
Both of these act like speed, at least to me they did, they made me very anxious, so, I avoid these two ingredients like the plague. So many coldremedies have these ingredients as they DO dry out your sines, but, they are not worth it, believe me.
Does anyone know of any good medicines that work or any homemade remedies for a nasal congestion, coughing, & clogged ear? I've had this constantly for about two months now & nothing seems to work for me & I feel like I'm going death because my ear is fine one day & then it hurts the next & I can't hear.
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...
The embryo is fine, it is happily floating around in your uterus and it doesn't feel a thing. Nasal congestion is very common. We can't take the usual cold meds in the first trimester.
I use Sinus Rinse, it is drug free and i find it to be more effective than many decongestants.
You can also breathe steam and drink tea.
If it is allergies making you sneeze, zyrtec is safe in the first trimester.
