cold remedies

I'm 24 wks and 6 days and my son has managed to pass his cold on to me. Stuffy/runny nose and a sore throat. Any tips on how to kick it faster? My mother-in-law is coming to town this weekend, so I need as much energy as possible to clean/deal with her. Lol.

Hello! I currently have a cold as well. My nose throat ears...everything hurts...I called my doctor this morning and she told me REGULAR/PLAIN sudafed and Tylenol are okay. I've also been talking hot showers the steam really helps.

Hi. Same here! I'm feel terrible! I'm 23 weeks and My Dr said it was ok to take Robitussin DM. I started taking it today. I really hope it helps soon! I have a 4 year old and my hubby works the afternoon shift so I will be all alone with my little tornado! Hope you feel better soon!!

Cinnamon and honey disowned in water helps. Someone posted on another post 2 cloves of garlic and water is a natural cure. I use thieves oil in a diffuser and usually feel better ASAP.  Thieves essential oil right on your neck takes the pain away to.

Hi ladies!
A natural route you can go is Apple Cider Vinegar. Make a cup of hot water and real lemon juice and put a couple of tablespoons of the ACV. It doesn't taste good but to make it easier to go down you can put honey in it. I use raw honey. Apple Cider Vinegar is great for you! Helps kill bacteria and wash out toxins. You must and I mean must buy the real stuff. BRAGGS Brand. It will say it has "the mother" in it. It will be cloudy looking. Do this a couple of times a day. Your cold will be gone fast! I take a shot of ACV every night before bed. Safe for pregnancy

Thanks Ladies! Unfortunately I think I'm gonna have to cave in and go to the dr because it has turned into a horrible chest cold. :-(
