Question: Any cough syrup which is safe during pregnancy?

1 Answers
Answer: Congratulations on your pregnancy. I can understand how difficult it must be for you.Cough can be reduced to a great extent by drinking warm water. So,take only warm water in sips,so it soothes throat and reduces cough. Take steam as it helps getting relief from blocked nose. Take saline nasal spray so nose does not get blocked. You can apply camphor oil so it gives relief to blocked and running nose. Take a decoction of ginger, turmeric, pepper and basil as it helps to get relief from cough a lot.If fever starts or any other symptoms appear please contact doctor. Take care
