Answer: Hii if u are pregnant do try to avoid medicine and follow home remedy for such sickness.u can follow below remedies. Do take proper rest for any sickness during pregnancy. Also take lots of liquid .U can gargle with warm water and salt if you have sour throat or cough. breathing warm, humid air to help loosen congestion; a facial steamer, hot-mist vaporizer, or even a hot shower can work.chicken soup, to help relieve inflammation and soothe congestion.adding honey or lemon to a warm cup of decaffeinated tea to relieve a sore throat.using hot and cold packs to alleviate sinus pain.wash your hand often. Another effective home remedy for common cold and cough is a mixture of lemon, cinnamon and honey. This syrup effectively cures cold and cough. Place a humidifier in your room, keep your head elevated on your pillow while resting, or use nasal strips. During pregnancy, it’s best to consume 1 crushed, raw garlic clove with each meal. If your cold is acute, you could increase your garlic consumption to 1 crushed, raw clove per every 2-3 hours. I like to smear in raw honey for taste and added benefits. Raw preferably. ACV alkalinizes the body and most illnesses can’t thrive in alkaline environments. It also contains good bacteria which helps to fight of infection. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of ACV into water or tea and drink 3 times a day.Gargle ACV to soothe a sore throat. You can use any of the above remedy and you will have a cough and cold free pregnancy. All the best.
Answer: Tell your gynae immediately about this bcoz coughing is not good during pregnancy.. and since you are mentioning that it's excess cough, don't delay.. Bcoz I suffered from the same problem.. I had so much cough when I was 30 weeks pregnant.. As a result, my uterus got opened 2 cms and my baby arrived one month early

Answer: Hi.. The best remedy for an infant is, applying baby vicks vapour rub on your baby's back, chest and feet. Make the toddler wear a comfortable pair of socks after applying vicks. Repeat this twice or thrice in a day. You will definitely see the difference. Also, for running nose/blocked use saline water (nasoclear), it is easily available in any medical store.
