  • Cough drops and robitussin. I'm not sure what else. You could call a local pharmacy and they could tell you. GL

  • My doctors always told me I could take any Tylenol products. So when I got a cold during pregnancy I took Tylenol cold products.

  • Make a syrup with equal parts honey (anti-bacterial) and cayenne pepper (anti inflammatory).

    Drink lots of peppermint (a natural decongestant) tea.
