Answer: Hello, Oopppsss!!! Dear you should be very careful about you are using during pregnancy.. you are in your early pregnancy so it's important to take a good care of yourself.. As you know betadine is not good . But don't worry you have gargle with hot water and vomit then it will not do any harm.. just stay relax. When I was pregnant and had a sore throat, I actually took lemon honey ginger mixture . honey helps soothe and coat your throat and the lemon helps clear away the mucus stuff it is really helpful. In addition to the hot water/lemon/honey combo, gurgle with salt water often. It's safer than any other thing.. Hope you will get a relief soon..

Answer: The feeling of falling sick is due to low immunity which is quite normal during pregnancy. Though this won't cause any harm to baby directly but taking antibiotics are not recommended. This is the time to follow home remedies, they are slow but immensely effective. 1. Make a tulsi, ginger,cloves and black pepper kadha and drink twice a day . 2. Tulsi ginger tea to soothe the throat pain. 3. Boil half a tsp of turmeric in a glass of water and drink before bed . 4. Take steam 5. Gargle with hot salty water frequently. 6. Take honey ginger juice thrice a day. 7. Take steam.
