  • Gargle with salt water and suck on cough drops. No need to run to the doctor over a sore throat its probably a cold. Use a cool mist humidifier or a vaporizer and take some tylenol cold and you will be fine.

  • Yup, gargle with warm water and salt water. Suck cough drops, drink hot tea, use a saline nasal spray...and I hope you feel better. Oh, and Vicks vapor rub too, that's what I used.

  • Lemon and honey are a big help also, they sooth as well as heal a little of the rawness. You can drink them mixed as a raw content, individually, or buy a tea and drink it that way. It is COMPLETELY SAFE durning pregnancy. You'd be amazed at how well it works.
